Elvis played here!You don't have to be a country music fan to have a great time in Nashville, Tennessee...a place where music lovers of all kinds can find something that will fit their clip board of fun!

As someone that knows just a little about country music, and is not a serious listener...I found plenty of music history that was fascinating.
Historic RCA Studio B, still currently in use, was once "the" place where the stars made music. It is where Elvis played. The King held his recording sessions, which, by the way, usually happened in the middle of the night at Studio B. It is here that he played the 1942 Steinway grand piano. Elvis used "mood" lighting with blues and reds and even recorded in the dark at times. The studio opened in 1957 and remained open until the day after Elvis died in 1977, which was just a coincidence. It is still used today on occasion.



Studio B is also where the young Dolly Parton partnered with the famous Porter Wagner as she kicked off her career. It is also where I found out that Dolly wrote the famed song "I Will Always Love You", which has been recorded a number of times and made most famous by the late Whitney Houston. I did not realize that Dolly wrote that song...or, if I did, I had forgotten. Dolly has said that she  writes a song or an idea for a song everday. Wow, can you imagine?
The Everly Brothers made their many hits at Studio B. This is a tour you don't want to miss. Whether you are of the younger generation...or remember  Minnie Pearl's jokes you will find something on the tour that will interest you. To tour the studio go to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum located at 222 Fifth Avenue South in the heart of Nashville. You can tour the studio with or without touring the Hall of Fame.

TIP: This tour is very popular. Check out booking your tickets in advance. Prices and package deals for tours are on the website:
