Wow, to close your eyes and know that Elvis recorded hundreds of songs in the same room gives you chills. It is unfortunate that it is only an option as part of a Country Music Hall of Fame package, but is still a "must" when you visit Nashville.

Worth the tour if you're a fan of music! Too bad it's a set scheduled tour from the country music hall of fame!

Our tour guide was GREAT! she gave us a lot of personal stories as she had worked in the industry for many years. When you walk in you can smell the history as it has that grandma's basement smell which i loved.We also got to sit at the piano that Elvis played on!

I added the RCA tour to our Country Music Hall of Fame ticket as i'd been reading 'Last Train to Memphis; The Rise of Elvis Presley' and wanted to see where he had recorded in Nashville. The tour exceeded mine and my husband's expectations, and was the best place we went to in Nashville. The ambiance in the whole building... More

Great place to learn about why music made Nashville the country music capital. Went as part of a group and Brad did a great job squeezing a lot of info in a short period of time. We even made a recording of one of Elvis' songs. Didn't quite sound like our group but it's a fun keepsake. We were on... More

If you love Classic country music and long for those days of the great "Nashville Sound"-- then you'll love this tour of Studio B! Great nostalgia ---it gave me goosebumps! You can just close your eyes and hear Elvis, Dolly, Jim Reeves, and more great artists. Loved it!

This is a 1 hour trip including a bus ride to and from the studio so it is a little rushed. When there, very interesting and great to be able to sit at the piano that Elvis and others used when recording.

This was a nice way of appreciating the historical component of the music industry. Plus we were able to make a fun, silly record of our group,singing (poorly) but made it fun and personal. The history of the studio was interesting and added to our understanding of the industry.

We did the studio B tour as part of our visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame. It isn't particularly long, but is worth going. It was fun to hear all the history behind the studio and the actual recording studio.

RCA Studio B is the only recording studio is Nashville that is open for public tours. Tour tickets must be purchased through the Country Music Hall of Fame, and it is a good extension of music history. Transportation is provided to and from RCA Studio B from the museum, and our guide shared some local stories along the route. The... More
