Skylite Records

Also credited as Skylite Recording Company


Skylite Records was formed in 1959 as a joint venture of the Blackwood Brothers and the Statesmen. In 1966, the label was sold to Joel Gentry and merged with the Sing Records label. At that point, the company was branded as Skylite-Sing.

In 1970 and again in 1986, master tapes owned by Skylite-Sing were destroyed by fires suspected to be the result of arson. In early 1991, Gentry's interest in Skylite-Sing was sold at a public auction by a bank in Nashville, Tennessee. Gentry was convicted in 1993 for three incidents of armed bank robbery that occurred in 1991 and 1992.
