Reunion Records is a Brentwood, Tennessee based division of Sony Music Entertainment started in 1982 by Dan Harrell and Mike Blanton.

History

The label was formed by Amy Grant's managers (with Harrell being her brother-in-law), with the label's original intent to give new artist Kathy Troccoli a home after being rejected by the major labels at the time. Miss Troccoli, Michael W. Smith, and Rich Mullins were the label's first three artists.

In 1990 they signed a new distribution deal with Geffen Records. In 1992 50% of Reunion Records was sold to BMGcite journal |last=Holley |first=Debbie |date=1993-01-16 |title=BMG buys into Blanton/Harrell, Reunion Records |journal=Billboard Magazine |id= |volume=105 |issue=3 |pages=10 ] and by 1995 the other half was acquired by BMG too.cite news |title=BMG ENTERTAINMENT AND BMG MUSIC PUBLISHING ACQUIRE REUNION RECORDS AND REUNION MUSIC |publisher=PR Newswire |pages=426CH012 |date=1995-04-26] For a time though following the BMG acquisition they distributed through RCA Records. From 1995 until 1996 it was part or Arista Records (a BMG company).
