No trip to "Music City USA" could be complete without a stop at RCA Studio B in Nashville. Many of the biggest names in country/pop recording history from the '50's, '60's and 1970's stopped in at this studio to record some of their biggest hits that shaped much of the music of those eras. The tour is sold as a... More

Took the Package tour at the Music Hall of Fame. Studio B was fantastic to be able to see where all the music started and the history behind it. You can only take the tour as a package not on its own.

The tour guide was a great storyteller and very kind. We enjoyed the stories and the information she gave. On the other hand, there was a narration the whole time and no time to just walk around and look and take it in the studio. If you wanted to take pictures, you could but you had to do it while...

Took a tour of the RCA Studio B in conjunction with the Hall of Fame tour. Brenda was our guide and she was very well informed. We learned a little about many of the people who recorded here. The favorite part was being in the studio where Elvis recorded 75% of his music. When we listened to a track he... More

One of my favourite visits. I'm a big fan of the Everly Brothers and they recorded a few of their hits here. The guide gives a little talk on various aspects of the history which is fascinating. For instance, there are colourer lights in the ceiling which was an idea from Elvis. He thought the different colours would improve the... More

The tour guide seemed a bit disappointed when he found out only a few Elvis fans were on the tour. That said, he really made the place come alive with stories of it's history and the incredible number of hit records that have come out of the studio. It really brought home the huge part this small room has played... More

This was one of my highlights on our Nashville trip. My teenage daughter still talks about how the nights were turned off in the recording studio to listen to Elvis" "Are You Lonesome Tonight". We had Brenda as our tour guide, and she was outstanding! You meet in the lobby of the Country Music Hall of Fame, board the bus... More

We had the best tour guide - Debbie! You could tell she loved her job. The tour was great. You could almost feel the music and connection with the greats that recorded there.

This was a very well run, concise but very informative tour. Shuttle bus left the Country Music Hall of Fame right on time. Our guide explained what we were seeing all along the way. Had a chance to listen to songs from many of the great artists who recorded at Studio B. Then sat in the actual recording studio, very... More

It was interesting but just a few rooms with studio equipment--the history and stories told by the tour guide were interesting
