Historic RCA Studio B is Home of 1,000 hits and one of the world’s most important recording studios. More than 35,000 songs were brought to life by the Studio B magic, including more than 1,000 top ten American hits, and over 150 Elvis Presley recordings (by far more than any other studio).
As Music City’s only historic studio tour, Historic RCA Studio B provides a glimpse into the heart of Nashville music-making during one of its most exciting and classic periods. In its heyday, Studio B saw the creation of numerous chartbusters, such as Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ Elvis Presley’s ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’ and Charley Pride’s ‘Kiss an Angel Good Morning.’
Historic RCA Studio B was built and leased to RCA Victor in 1957 and Studio B stayed in active use until 1977. For many years RCA executive Chet Atkins presided over the facility, where he helped create the smooth Nashville Sound.
Linda Jun, Vandalia Bus Lines, Inc. says ‘Our tours to Nashville, Tennessee are not complete without a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the historic Studio B! After our Christmas program for 2006, when we polled our clients, many of them listed Studio B as their favorite part of the tour. Walking the exhibits of the Hall enlighten and excite even the newest of country music fans, and strengthen those that are already in love with the sound! Thank you, Country Music Hall of Fame, and Studio B, for helping make our tours to Nashville a huge success!’
