Lamon Records is an indie record label, originally established in North Carolina, now based in Nashville, Tennessee. Known primarily as an artist development label, Lamon Records Nashville usually concentrates its efforts in Americana, bluegrass, and country, as well as all forms of Christian music.
Lamon Records was started in 1962 by Dwight and Lucille (Cathy) Moody. Their sons, Carlton Moody, Dave Moody and Trent Moody, known as The Moody Brothers were nominated for a Grammy Award for their instrumental performance of the classic fiddle tune "Cotton Eyed Joe". This trio of brothers would be nominated for a second Grammy on the Lamon family label in 1990 and win three International Country Music Awards in Europe.
Notable Awards and Releases 
In addition to the Moody Brothers' two Grammy Award nominations, Lamon's artists, producers and songwriters have won eight Dove Awards and over fifty Dove Award nominations from the members of the Gospel Music Association since 2002.
In 1989, the Moodys and Lamon recorded an album in Prague, Czechoslovakia with Jiri Brabec and Country Beat. The album "Friends" was the first such cooperative production between an American company and what was then a communist state-owned record label Supraphon. The project won the artists, producers, engineers and studios the Ampex Golden Reel Award.
In 2007, Lamon's Americana recording artist Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos had their album "Ignoring All The Warning Signs..." produced by Dave Moody and Dick Neal, recognized on XM Radio's Year-end Top 40 X-Country Album Chart.
In 2010, producers Dave Moody and Colin Elliott from the Irish group Live Issue recorded the album Old Fashioned Hymns and Gospel Songs...for Those Who Miss Them with George Hamilton IV and musical guests Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Gail Davis, Pat Boone, Del McCoury, Charlie Pride, Bill Anderson, Connie Smith, Tommy Cash, Cliff Barrows, George Beverly Shea and many others. The track "I'm Using My Bible for a Roadmap" featuring Del McCoury and The Moody Brothers was nominated for a 2011 Dove Award by the members of the Gospel Music Association.
