RCA's old Studio B, one of country music's richest treasures and most productive hit factories from 1957 to 1977, will become a working studio again, this time as a laboratory for students from Belmont University and Middle Tennessee schools. Officials from Belmont and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced January 24th that they'll work together to operate the studio, which was a tourist attraction run by the Hall from 1977 to 1998 but has been closed to the public since then.
Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Waylon Jennings, Bobby Bare, Chet Atkins, Dolly Parton, Jim Reeves and Willie Nelson are among the artists who have recorded at the studio. Atkins, who died last year, also produced many hits there when he ran RCA's Nashville operation.
