Elvis has not left this building. His presence is very strongly felt. Was very cool to hear music from so many legends and see where they recorded and instruments they used. Shout out to George, our tour guide. Very knowledgeable and interesting. He stayed upbeat and informative even though the group in general was very dull. I mean seriously people,... More

Tours run out of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Eerie feeling inside imagining the recording artists who have recorded here - those departed and still alive - Elvis and the Jordannaires, Brenda Lee, Dolly Parton, the Everly Brothers, Eddie Arnold, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, the Judds, Skeeter Davis (The End of the World was recorded here) and many others!...

Interesting stories and sound stage history but not much to see. It has been closed for so long that there is not much interest anymore

Our tour of Studio B was good, letting us see gems like Elvis's Steinway piano which hadn't moved from the room since 1957. The old music clips were great and, although it doesn't take long to visit, it's worth popping in.

As an extra part of the CMHOF Tour, we were taken to Studio B which was a quick 5 minutes from the HOF. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about all of it and very into the music that had been produced there. Just imagine being in the building where Elvis recorded numerous of his recordings, Dolly Partin recording Jolene... More

This tour is great, very informative tour guides and friendly. When they play Elvis and turn off the lights, wow, I'm not ashamed to say I was emotional at that point! Highly recommended

RCA Records very wisely converted a building near Nashville's vibrant downtown (and several competing venues) into a roomy recording studio right around the time it paid Sam Phillips of Sun Records the laughably unfair amount of $35,000 for the contract of Elvis Presley. This Studio B eventually saw a star-studded parade of pop, blues, and rock artists perform -- and... More

We wasted an hour or more on this tour. We were bussed to the studio, stood in a non-descript room for about 10 - 15 minutes listening to music which we all could have played on our i players. We were then shown the studio which is a room which many famous people recorded their music in - but hey... More

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that you did not enjoy Historic RCA Studio B. This is the only studio in Nashville that has a guided tour and it is the oldest still standing in Nashville. Those two facts are significant! As you stated, many famous people did record there. The room you are referring to is so very... More

This is a pretty cool place. We saw where Elvis and other greats have recorded and are still recording today. If you have time, check this out in addition to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
