Chart Records

Chart Records was a country music record label of the 1960s, best known for turning Lynn Anderson into a major country star. It was owned by Slim Williamson.

The label was founded in 1964. Among the artists who recorded at one time for the label were Junior Samples, Del Wood, Maxine Brown, Jim Nesbitt, Connie Eaton, Lynn Anderson, Red Sovine, Billy "Crash" Craddock, LaWanda Lindsey and Anthony Armstrong Jones. Many of the labels' vocalists were quite young, teenagers or in their early twenties, quite unusual during the 1960s for a country music label.

Chart was distributed by RCA Victor for several years during the 1960s. Today Gusto Records owns the Chart Records catalogue.

The publishing arms of Chart Records were Yonah Music (BMI) and Peach Music (SESAC).
