Plantation Records was a country music record label started by Shelby Singleton. The label is best-known for the Jeannie C. Riley 45rpm single, "Harper Valley P.T.A." which was a number one pop recordd in 1968.

The label established Riley as one of the major country female vocalists of the late 1960's and early 1970's but had less success with other acts such as Ray Pillow. In the 1970's the label signed a number of veteran country performers to the label including Webb Pierce, Jimmie Davis, Jimmy C. Newman, Hank Locklin, and Roy Drusky though few of these records charted. Broadway star Carol Channing also recorded two albums for the label in duet performances with Pierce, Newman, and Locklin.

Singleton established at least two other labels (SSS International and Amazon), and helped comedian Bill Cosby form a short-lived label, Tetragrammaton Records, in the late 1960s. He purchased Sun Records from Sam Phillips in 1969.
