Rca Studio B - Review

The RCA Studio B was built by Dan Maddox in 1957. It was classy and was characterised by its originality. It was known as the crib of the Nashville sounds in the 1960’s. This recording centre had background vocals and strings to revive country music. RCA Studio B helped put Nashville on the international music map.

It was constructed at the request of Chet Atkins and Steve Sholes. According to Chet Atkins, the plans for the studio were drawn up on a napkin by Bill Miltenburg. He was RCA's chief engineer and recording manager. After four months construction, the studio opened its control room on the first floor. The second story contained the echo chamber. In 1960 and 1961, further rooms were added for tape mastering and lacquer mastering lab. Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, and Jim Reeves were among the few to patronise this studio.

RCA Studio B was donated to the Museum by the late Dan and Margaret Maddox in 1992. The studio is now a cultural attraction for visitors. Here they learn about the studio’s progress in Nashville as a music city. Visit this studio which will be the undisputed highlight of your trip. Tour guides will bring this studio to life with their enthusiastic stories.

Rca Studio B, Nashville Reviews

  • I had never been on the tour of RCA Studio B before. Ron Harmon was our tour guide. My family and I had an extraordinarily good time listening to Ron's detailed information regarding the early days of Studio B. My daughter, age 13, didn't realize Elvis songs were "Elvis". I got a kick out of that. That was the best part of the tour for her... sitting in the studio... in Elvis' ambiance, imagining him recording there under different colored lights. To be a musician and to be named (in part) after the Kings daughter and to sit at one of the many pianos he played during his life was a treasure I will remember forever. I just wish I remembered how to play. We did get to hear someone play a diddly that was absolutely amazing! Such stories those walls could tell!

  • It's definitely worth your while to check out Studio B, but the tour itself is pretty useless. You basically walk through the rooms while listening to songs recorded at the studio. There is little-to-no time spent on discussing the recording process or equipment used. It feels like a real missed opportunity. It's great to see the room where so much music has been produced, but very little information is presented.

  • A fun little tour with a great guide! George is very knowledgeable about country music! He brings you into the studio where so many famous people have recorded their music in the past. There is video of them recording the music and many pictures from the past. You get to go into the room where they actually sat and played their music!

  • We went here on a tour through the country music hall of fame museum. Such an incredible experience so sit in the room where so much great music was created. They tour was very informative and that blue x was where all the greats stood while recording! So cool!!

  • Went on a guided tour lovely staff. Meghan our tour guide was fantastic we even recorded a song in the very studio Elvis Presley used. Well worth a visit
