RCA Studio B recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally known simply as RCA Studios, it became famous in the 1950’s/60’s for being a part of what many refer to as the Nashville Sound. A sophisticated style characterized by background vocals and strings, the Nashville Sound both revived the popularity of country music and helped establish Nashville as an international recording center.

Historic RCA Studio B-once the recording home of popular music titans such as Elvis Presley, Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, and the Everly Brothers is both a classroom for Nashville area students and a popular cultural attraction.
Following the Mike Curb Family Foundation’s philanthropic 2002 purchase and subsequent lease in perpetuity to the non-profit Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, the storied studio’s exterior has been renovated and the interior has been returned to its 1970s-era prime as an analog “temple of sound.”

The studio has begun a new life as a:
Cultural attraction for visitors, who can become acquainted with the studio’s place in the evolution of Nashville as the Music City.
Classroom for Nashville-area students, learning the science of sound and recording technology.

    • Hahaha! 9 lives keeps me young. I was big on saxophone for about two minutes until Boots Randolph showed up and became the Nashville Sax King for all time! So then I switched to accordion… And everybody knows accordions are really big in rock and country music… lol! 🎷🎼
