  • Toured this as a combo with the Country Music Hall of Fame. This was 10 times better than the Hall of Fame. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic, friendly, and informative. Just being in the presence of this historic place is amazing in itself. You get to hear the classic music that was recorded there. You even get to touch the very piano that Elvis played so many times. It was just awesome. Don't miss it!
  • What an incredible place steeped in music history. So many amazing songs were made in these very walls by some of the biggest recording artists of all time. The tour starts from the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum which is only a short shuttle away from the studio. The guide we had was exceptional, amazing knowledge, super friendly and more than willing to answer questions. This is a must for any music fans of any genre visiting Nashville.
  • RCA Studio B, the "Home of 1000 Hits" from the 50's-70's. Elvis and others. (There's an interesting fact about when it closed, but I'm not telling! ) We'll worth the time .
  • The fact that u get to actually sit where Elvis Presly played piano is beyond words! A definite must do when visiting music city. An experience u will never forget!
  • I’ve only heard good things about this studio. I look forward to making magic music at this establishment. Magic music very soon.
