Historic RCA Studio B is one of the world's most important and successful recording studios. More than 35,000 songs were brought to life by the Studio B magic, including more than 1,000 American hits, 40 million-selling singles, and over 200 Elvis Presley recordings (by far more than any other studio). Step into the house of the hitmakers and discover the legend of this Music Row landmark.
Come enjoy a personally guided tour through this world-famous studio located on renowned Music Row. Studio tours depart daily from the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and are sold only in conjunction with museum admission between 10:30am - 2:30pm. Tickets are available at the Museum's Box Office or online. Roundtrip transportation is included. Seats are limited.
After your tour, take the memories—and a piece of history—home with you. Stop by the Museum Store, or shop online, for a selection of classic Studio B recordings and other unique merchandise, including T-shirts, posters, and more.
Music tells the story of life, love, heartache,
and happiness. A song can stop you in your
tracks, and to this day, you remember where
you were when you first heard it. Music shapes
our lives and defines our country.
In the heart of Music Row, you can experience the music, the stories, and the magic. Come relive your memories and create new ones at Historic RCA Studio B—the only recording studio tour in Nashville.
If you close your eyes, you can almost imagine them there: Dolly Parton arriving a bit breathlessly after a fenderbender; Elvis strolling in way past midnight and making his way around the room to greet everyone; Jim Reeves recording, as always, in a sharp suit—part of the reason he is remembered as "Gentleman Jim." And, of course, you can hear the smooth, mythical finger-picking style of Chet Atkins, the man whose vision of the studio came to life from drawings on a napkin.
You'll understand why artists like Marty Stuart, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Wynonna, and many others have followed these legends into this magical space. Stuart first recorded here with Lester Flatt as a 13-year-old, and in 2010, Stuart's Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions) produced the Grammy-winning song "Hummingbyrd." Wynonna, Underwood, and McBride came here in 2008 to sing with the voice of Elvis on an album of Christmas duets.
Groups not only experience the studio's magic through a privately guided tour, but may also participate in a group recording session of their own. Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling 800-852-6437. Transportation is not included for group tours.
