Lyric Street Records was an American record label specializing in country music. The label was part of the Disney Music Group, owned by the The Walt Disney Company. President Randy Goodman, formerly a general manager for RCA Records, founded the label in 1997. Among its first signees were Lari White, John Berry, Aaron Tippin, SHeDAISY and Rascal Flatts.

The label launched a subsidiary label: Carolwood Records, in October 2008 Jessica Andrews was the first artist signed to this subsidiary label, followed by Trent Tomlinson (who was formerly signed to Lyric Street proper) and Love and Theft. Carolwood was shuttered in November 2009, with most of its staff being transferred back to Lyric Street. Love and Theft, Ruby Summer, and The Parks were moved to Lyric Street proper, and Tomlinson returned to it.

On April 14, 2010, Disney Music Group announced the closure of the Lyric Street label. This announcement also stated that Bucky Covington, Kevin Fowler, Tyler Dickerson, and Rascal Flatts would be transferred to other branches of Disney Music Group; in addition, a promotion team managed Covington's and Fowler's singles which were on the charts at the time of the label's closure. By August, Rascal Flatts had transferred to Big Machine Records.
