A record label founded in 2005 by Nashville, Tennessee businessman Scott Borchetta, who had previously worked for MCA Nashville and DreamWorks Records Nashville.

The label's first major hit came in 2006 when they picked up Texas country singer Jack Ingram, who promptly got a #1 country hit with "Wherever You Are". But it was a young teenager from Pennsylvania named Taylor Swift who would send the label to fame. Swift remained signed to Big Machine until 2018, and has remained one of the label's most successful artist. Also successful in the long term is Florida Georgia Line, who records for the BMLG (formerly Republic Nashville) division.Other acts on the label have come and gone over the years, and it has remained one of the stronger independent players in the country music field.


The label also owns the imprints Valory Music Co. and BMLG Records (formerly Republic Nashville). Previous divisions include Nash Icon Records (a partnership with Cumulus Media) and a revival of Dot Records.

In addition to country music artists, the label has also released albums by the rock bands Badflower and Cheap Trick, along with soundtracks for the TV series Nashville.
