New signs outside RCA Studio A will be illuminated during a celebration Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 5:30 p.m. This event marks the completion of a nearly three-year renovation project which restored the historic studio to its 1960s-era glory. The new vintage-style signs feature RCA’s famous dog, Nipper, with his Victrola phonograph, which adorned the façade of Studio A until the record label retired the logo in 1968.

Mayor Megan Barry will join proprietors of Studio A, Chuck Mead of BR549, and the Music Row community/public at the event outside the studio at 30 Music Sq. W., Nashville, TN 37206.

In 2014, philanthropists Mike Curb, Chuck Elcan and Aubrey Preston purchased Studio A to save it from the wrecking ball. The following year, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb is the producer-in-residence.

Studio A’s clients have included country legends Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Charley Pride and George Strait.
