Historic RCA Studio B, once the recording home of popular musicians like Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Eddy Arnold, and the Everly Brothers is both a classroom for Nashville area students and a popular cultural attraction. Built by Dan Maddox in 1957 and first run by guitarist/producer Chet Atkins, RCA Studio B first became known as one of the cradles of the “Nashville Sound” in the 1960s. A sophisticated style characterized by background vocals and strings, the Nashville Sound both revived the popularity of country music and helped establish Nashville as an international recording center.
