If you’ve toured the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville, you’d know that there’s a fabulous added option to visit RCA’s Studio B in the inner suburb of Music Row, where Elvis Presley, among many others, recorded a string of hits.  This was my first introduction to Music Row, a place full of studios and music business organisations.  It’s well worth a walk around just to check out the sign boards and historic signs of this area that began to house music businesses sixty years ago.

Within the past twelve months, another famous recording place, Studio A, was under threat from developers and this sparked a serious debate about the area and its cultural and musical significance.

The Tennessean newspaper has reported the welcome news that Music Row is to be named a National Treasure, thereby hopefully preserving this most important precinct of Music City USA.

Here is the story.
