This chapter explores the efforts of Don Pierce in maintaining Starday Records after its co-founder Harold W. Daily left. It notes that it was during Pierce’s tenure that Starday realized its greatest achievement: the introduction of country music to the world. By making Nashville, Tennessee the headquarters of Starday’s country music distribution in several countries outside the U.S., it helped cement the reputation of the city as one of the biggest music centers in the world.
