- Royal Records was founded in 1986 by Jerry Story and Tony Oxendine and quickly became one of the major labels in the square dance industry. They record at Oak Valley Studio in Nashville, TN using Nashville studio musicians. Oak Valley is a state of the art 32 track digital studio. Kevin McManus is a four-time SGMA Studio Engineer of the Year award recipient and a 1994 Emmy Award winner.
In 2004, to offset the steadily rising costs of vinyl production and steadily declining vinyl sales Royal Records established its Platinum Membership Program. This enables callers to purchase a complete Royal session at one time, and affords them the exclusive use of these tunes for one year. The Gold Edition allows callers to purchase the year-old Platinum releases (CD only).
