In other news … Tennessee’s historic RCA Studio B was built in 1956 by Dan Maddox and it’s just been officially added to the National Register of Historic Places. The studio was originally requested by the legendary American guitarist Chet Atkins along with RCA executive Steve Sholes and it has been used by many popular recording artists over the years including Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison & The Everly Brothers just to name a few. Below is a the first part of a video tour of the studio that I found on youtube. The second part can be found here.
