Third Man Records opened shop at 623 7th Ave S in Nashville in 2009. Since then, the label/record plant has released nearly 600 records, hosted hundreds of live shows, captured thousands of recordings for visitors to their stores, blew up the box the rest of the record industry thought was inside, opened a pressing plant, has given schoolchildren the opportunity to make a vinyl record, helped to revive a dying industry, and brings the music of their favorite musicians to a larger audience.
