|Parent company||RCA Records (1976 - 1986)|
Independent (1986 - present)
The label primarily caters to folk music artists and bands, and has signed acts such as Denver, Starland Vocal Band (and its precursor, Fat City), Maxine Nightingale, Johnny's Dance Band, Nanette Mancini, and Tom Crum. Founded as a subsidiary of RCA Records under the name Windsong Records, Windstar became an independent label in 1986, when RCA and Denver parted. Denver and RCA were not on particularly good terms towards the end of their partnership and so RCA who at the time had recently been acquired by General Electric (which had military contracts) decided to part ways with Denver after his controversial song "What Are We Making Weapons For (Let Us Begin)" on his (last) RCA labelled album One World.
