Founded in October 1941 by Bill Quinn under the name Quinn Recording, it is the oldest continuously operating studio in the southeastern United States. In 1950 Quinn changed the name of the studio to Gold Star Studios. Huey P Meaux took control in the early 1970's, and gave the studio its current name.Quinn's Gold Star Records featured country music, then still commonly known as hillbilly music. Recordings of Cajun music also appeared on the label. In his first few years of business, Bill Quinn also recorded radio commercials and birthday greetings. That changed when Gold Star released its first hit record, a song called “Jole Blon” by Harry Choates, a swing and dance tune that and became the first and only Cajun record to reach the Billboard Top Five. It is still popular today. The Gold Star label had a string of hits throughout the late-1940's, 50's and 60's.
