“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

You can only see Studio B if you buy the Platinum ticket ($35 vs $24 just for the Museum) at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (a must see). Spaces are limited but you can reserve spots for another day if they're filled the day you visit. The tour is only about an hour but so interesting and well done. You take a shuttle from the Hall of Fame over to Music Row. The building is much smaller than I thought it would be. Our guide was very enthusiastic and shared a lot of information about the artists who recorded there, especially Elvis who recorded about 100 of his songs there. You can even sit at the piano he used during recordings which was pretty cool (even though I'm not a huge Elvis fan). She also gave a lot of information about Music Row and today's artists. (sorry, can't remember her name)

“Really Good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

This was a good tour with a really informative guide especially if you like the music of such artists as Elvis, Roy Orbison, The Everley Brothers, Jim Reeves, Dolly Parton, Charlie Pride ect. Thousands of songs were recorded here. Some of the instruments used are still there. It's the oldest surviving recording studio in Nashville. Go if you love this kind of music and see where these wonderful singers recorded some of their songs.

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

When visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame be sure to add the RCA studio B tour. Wonderful tour and really cool to sit in the place where so much music history was made. Our tour guide was fantastic and it was also fun to see a little bit of Music Row on the shuttle ride over!

“Great Tour Guide - a MUST DO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Add this tour on to the cost of admission to the Country Music Hall of fame - it is Well Worth it. They will bus you to the site and the tour is only about 45 minutes but on the weekend we had the most fantastic tour guide - Ron! He made the whole thing come alive - we could almost hear the ghosts of recording sessions past thanks to his enthusiastic and knowledgeable delivery. Worth the trip.
