Mayor Megan Barry will join proprietors of the historic RCA Studio A, BR549â€™s Chuck Mead and the Music Row community on Tuesday, November 7, at 5:30 PM to celebrate the installation and lighting of new iconic signs at the studio complex.
Tuesdayâ€™s sign lighting will mark the return of RCAâ€™s famous â€œNipperâ€ dog and his Victrola phonograph, which adorned the faÃ§ade of Studio A until the record label retired the logos in 1968. The sign installation completes a nearly three-year interior and exterior restoration that has returned the historic landmark to its former 1960s-era glory.
Philanthropists Mike Curb, Chuck Elcan and Aubrey Preston purchased Studio A to save it from the wrecking ball in 2014. The following year, it joined the National Register of Historic Places. Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb is the producer-in-residence. Studio A’s clients have included country legends such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Charley Pride and George Strait.
Media and the public are invited to attend Tuesdayâ€™s celebration. Details are as follows:
