Republic Nashville is a record label established in 2009 by Universal Republic Records in New York and Big Machine Records in Nashville. It is headquartered on Music Row and utilizes the combined resources of Big Machine Records and Universal Republic Records.[1] In March 2014, Big Machine announced it will revive defunct record label Dot Records as a sister label for Republic Nashville. Until 2015, the label was owned by the Universal Music Group; however, in July 2015, the Big Machine Label Group acquired full ownership of the label as part of distribution negotiations.[2]

As of December 2011, Republic Nashville can be found on the "List of Supporters: H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act" in support of SOPA legislation.[3]
