Customize Your Experience With a Unique Group Package
Star for a Day*
This itinerary begins on Nashville’s famed Music Row with a tour of Historic RCA Studio B. Here your group can get an up-close look at the studio once used by legends Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley and many other American music icons. Since 1996 artists such as Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood and indie rock group My Morning Jacket have recorded there. Tours conclude inside the actual studio where your group will work with a professional sound engineer in a recording session that they will be able to purchase as a keepsake CD. The package also includes the option of lunch or dinner at either the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon or Ole Red, where groups enjoy the special surprise of hearing their newly recorded “hit” come alive over the restaurant’s state-of-the-art sound system.
The Stories Behind The Songs*
After touring the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, your group can participate in a 45-minute private session with one of Nashville’s accomplished songwriters. Visitors are given insight on the craft of songwriting from concept to hit. These up-close and personal sessions give guests a rare opportunity to hear recognizable hits in their original forms. Sessions conclude with a meet and greet with the writer (who has his or her recordings available for purchase) and autographs.
Sharing the Art of Songwriting*
Your group joins one of Music City’s premier writers for an hour-long session of songwriting. By offering personal insight and direction, the writer guides your group in composing an original song. Guests are encouraged to offer lyric ideas in an improvisational and unpredictable style that keeps the fun rolling. And before the hour is over, the songwriter delights the group one more time by performing their finished song.
