King Records

King Records was the name of at least two different record labels.

King Records was a United States based record label of the mid 20th century, specializing in country music, at the time still known as "Hillbilly music". King advertised "If it's a King, It's a Hillbilly -- If it's a Hillbilly, it's a King". King artists included Homer and Jethro, Grandpa Jones, and the Delmore Brothers.

King's corporate headquarters was in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company also had a "Race Records" (African American) label, Queen Records.

King Records was also the name of an unrelated record company in Japan in the years after World War II. Japanese King Records was headquartered in Tokyo.
