In 1991 the group signed a contract with Capricorn Records and released Widespread Panic, their debut with a major label, later that year. In 1992 they joined the HORDE tour along with other acts such as Aquarium Rescue Unit, Phish and Blues Traveler. Everyday was released in 1993 and in 1994 Ain't Life Grand.

Light Fuse, Get Away, the band's first live album, was released in 1998. In 2003, Widespread Panic released Ball. In 2004 they released three live albums Jackassolantern, Uber Cobra and Night of Joy and in 2005 another live set was released called Live at Myrtle Beach.
