After taking in the sights at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, take a tour of RCA Studio B. Located on downtown’s famed “Music Row,” the recording studio (Nashville’s oldest) was built in 1957 and reopened as part of the museum in 1977. In between, some of country’s biggest stars, including Elvis Presley (who cut 150 tracks there), Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Lee Ann Rimes, recorded more than 1,000 top 10 hits in the studio. Today, Belmont University uses the facility to teach future recording engineers, musicians, and singing stars the fine art of making music.
RCA Studio B, 1611 Roy Acuff Place. Tours of the studio leave from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, 222 Fifth Avenue South, daily between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., countrymusichalloffame.org
