As Music City's only historic studio tour, Historic RCA Studio B provides a glimpse into the heart of Nashville music-making during one of its most exciting and classic periods. In its heyday, Studio B saw the creation of numerous chartbusters, such as Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" and Charley Pride's "Kiss an Angel Good Morning." Tours of Historic RCA Studio B depart daily from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and are available only in conjunction with museum admission. After your tour, take the memories—and a piece of history—home with you. Stop by the Museum Store, or shop online, for a selection of classic Studio B recordings and other unique merchandise, including T-shirts, posters, and more. Fun Fact: Elvis' musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager. In 1954, he began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor which brought him to Nashville to record some of his biggest hits, including "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and "Its Now or Never" at Historic RCA Studio B.
