Hidden piece of history

The studio was a pleasant addition to the Country Music Hall of fame and worth it. Short bus ride to see and hear music history.

Tour guide Ron was a wealth of information, but the Studio itself wasn't much to see. If you have the time, do it. But it's not a must see. Sun Studios in Memphis was better.

Our tour leader was very well informed and obviously felt passionate about the music and preservation of Studio B! It was a good tour for a rainy afternoon!

We had one of the best, if not the best, tour of our lives. This is the studio where the greats of the 50s and 60s did their thing. They play parts of some of the sessions that you will not hear anywhere else and the very interesting stories they have to tell you about some of the recording sessions.... More

This place is music heaven! So many great artists have recorded here. If you are an Elvis fan you will be in your element. See the piano the King actually sat at to record so many of his classic hits. This lace is worth a visit. You can't see the studio as a stand alone visit-it comes as part of... More

Our tour guide was great, and I wish I remembered his name! You can access this tour from the Country Music Hall of Fame. They take you over in a bus. I was fascinated to go over to Music Row and see all of the recording company buildings. If you are an old time country music fan or Elvis fan,... More

You take a bus from the Country Music Hall of Fame over to the studio, where your guide describes the history of performers and producers/engineers/musicians who recorded there. Elvis fans will love it!

Fantastic tour of RCA Studio B - coupled with the enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guide, Jeff. I was not a country and western fan before I visited Nashville, but I must admit I do like some now! There were some superb stories told by the magnificent story-teller Jeff, including the snippets about Jim Reeves and his satisfaction with... More
