Country Music Hall of Fame and RCA Studio B

First full day in Nashville we headed to the Country Music Hall of Fame.  We met up with George who was our guide to the RCA Studio B.  RCA Studio B was the studio where many famous singers recorded 1958 to 1971.  Singers like Roy Orbison, Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton, Port Wagoner, Waylon and Willie, Jim (Ed) Brown and Elvis Presley.  One of the interesting stories was that when Elvis came in to record that he came in late at night and worked all night long.
