A great little tour

The tour was great, some really interesting anecdotes, it was just a shame that we didn't get to go into the actual studio. Worth a try though.

We had a very nice tour of RCA Studio B. It was fun to listen to a lot of the music that had been recorded there and to see how they used to record back in the day. Our tour guide was pretty good, but not great. We enjoyed seeing it all.

If you have a chance, this is a neat place to visit. It is pretty surreal standing in the room where so many musicians recorded their hit songs.

I'm glad we saw the studio - it was very intersting - but don't expect alot - its just two rooms....We had an odd tour guide, which I suspect detracted from the tour. Still glad to see it.

Highly recommend this tour! I was glad that I had read reviews of this prior to our travels! We saved this for our last day and it was excellent! Well worth the extra bit of money!

Our tour guide was phenomenal! Highly recommend this tour! You get to walk through the actual Studio where Elvis made RCA a ton of money amongst other great stars.

Loved this! Being a fan of old country and the likes of Patsy Cline and Elvis made this a must see. You could feel the presence of the past stars whom had recorded there in their glory days. The guide had lots of great stories about the building. Ask how the building got bricks knocked out by a singer in... More

Be sure to buy the ticket that includes the tour of this-our tour guide was fantastic and his knowledge was great! So exciting to see the piano that Elvis recorded his 273 songs on. The stories could go on & on but we ran out of time!

Keith Wright was our host and gave us a short history of the Studio, his enthusiasm was infectious and when playing short recordings of some of the musicians who had recorded here, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck! A 'must do' for all music lovers who visit Nashville.
