The EBs and RCA Victor Studio B, Nashville






RCA Victor Studio B is a recording studio in Nashville, TN where The EBs recorded many of their early Cadence hits in the late 1950s. A few years later, the studio became famous in the 1960s for being a part of what many refer to as "The Nashville Sound," popularizing and modernizing early country music with more background vocals, strings, and modern recording techniques. RCA Studios and The Nashville Sound helped establish Nashville as an international recording center. The EBs were the first rock and roll act to come out of Nashville recording studios. The studio is on the National Register for Historic Places.

Floyd Cramer's 'Last Date' at Studio B

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqE_cIS0WHA

In 1960, a 26-year-old Floyd Cramer wrote and recorded this song... in this studio... on this piano... with Chet Atkins as producer. How amazing it is to play Grandad's "Last Date" with Chet's great-niece Meagan Taylor and Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie McCoy at Historic RCA Studio B!

Another clip with Floyd Cramer playing piano

Directed by Jake Coco & recorded and filmed in the legendary Studio B where Elvis Presley, Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, and the Everly Brothers have recorded. I was asked by Google to take part in an exclusive YouTube pop-up recording and filming session. Hope you enjoy the video of my song "Just Two Kids"
