This was one of our most enjoyable stops in Nashville. The tour guide was knowledgeable and informative. The discussed musical history of the studio was eye popping as to the number of hits that were recorded at this studio. Elvis recorded over 40 hits from this studio. Being able to view the old recording equipment, see the piano used in... More

We took this tour along with the Country Hall of Fame and it is well worth it. The history of where Elvis recorded as well as Charley Pride, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison and the Everly Brothers to name a few, you get goose bumps listening to the music and sitting in the very room where it was recorded. Our guide... More

Visited as part of tour of Country Music Hall of Fame. Well worth the extra money to visit Studio B. Sense of history is palpable. Great to be able to visit the place where Elvis recorded nearly 200 of his hits. Also other great artists recorded here such as Roy Orbison, Jim Reeves, Everley Bros. & Dolly Parton. You get...

The studio was a pleasant addition to the Country Music Hall of fame and worth it. Short bus ride to see and hear music history.

Tour guide Ron was a wealth of information, but the Studio itself wasn't much to see. If you have the time, do it. But it's not a must see. Sun Studios in Memphis was better.
