Lonesome Day Records is a small independent record label based in Booneville, Kentucky, where the label holds its main office and studio and is run by owner Randall Deaton. With future plans to open an office in Lexington, KY the label - which takes its name from a Bruce Springsteen song - has released some of the most noteworthy records in bluegrass and roots music from an impressive roster of talent, which has included over the years Fred Eaglesmith, Ralph Stanley II, and Larry Cordle. Today, Deaton has a new slate of talent carrying the bluegrass torch, including Girls, Guns and Glory, Richard Bennett, Tim Shelton, Jeff Clair, and Jeff Parker. As for Deaton’s musical mission, it's simple: Make great music with integrity and quality. “The power of music is astonishing. The subject matter of songs has not really changed over hundreds of years yet there is 'new' music created everyday and people still want it. I think we have done some records that will still be played years down the road. The music industry may change but it isn’t going anywhere. People will always want good music but they just may buy it in a different way," he explains.
