Nugget Records 1969

Nugget Records¬†(1969-’70)

In 1968¬†Fred Carter, Jr. bought a sixteen track studio built by bluegrass legends Lonzo and Oscar. Secluded in the hills outside of Nashville, the Nugget Record label was the beginning of an independent label like Monument, and Fred intended to build it the exact same way. The studio was an ideal recording environment and when Bridger’s contract with Monument Records expired after three singles, he was the first artist to sign with Nugget Records.
