If These Walls Could Sing – Historic RCA Studio B, Nashville TN
It’s hallowed ground in Nashville Tennessee, so special is this place that it is part of the Country Music Hall of Fame. It’s been called the “Home of 1,000 Hits”. Chances are many of the songs you are enjoying tonight on Classic Country Saturday Night were recorded in this very room. It is RCA Studio B.
Studio B was the stomping grounds of country legend Chet Atkins who managed the operation for some time producing hundreds of hits. Elvis Presley recorded over 150 songs in between these historic walls. Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Eddy Arnold, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson have all created magic, music and memories within the confines of RCA Studio B.
You can arrange a tour to see this amazing studio that has been renovated to it’s 1970′s splendor thanks to a generous gift from the Mike Curb Family foundation. They purchased the property and then leased it in perpetuity to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
On this day 51 years ago Skeeter Davis stepped into Studio B and walked out with a song that has become a part of country music history. It was on this day Skeeter recorded The End of The World.
