Oh Boy Records has debuted the second installment of its new documentary series, Big Old Goofy World: The Story of Oh Boy Records, today (Aug. 18).
Directed by Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard, the three-part series explores the history of the country’s second oldest artist-owned independent label and the oldest in Nashville, while also commemorating its landmark 40th anniversary. Founded in 1981 by John Prine and his longtime manager Al Bunetta, Oh Boy Records continues to be a part of Nashville’s independent music community with a roster that includes Tré Burt, Kelsey Waldon, Dan Reeder, Arlo McKinley and Emily Scott Robinson.

The weeklong celebration will include sold-out tribute concerts at The Ryman Auditorium, CMA Theater at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Basement East.
Additionally, on Oct. 8, Oh Boy Records will release a new tribute record, Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine, Vol. 2. Oh Boy has already unveiled two artists and songs that will be featured on the album, including “Paradise” performed by Sturgill Simpson and “I Remember Everything” performed by Brandi Carlile.
