Any normal person driving past RCA Studio A, practically hidden on Music Row street corner, would imagine the place was an apartment complex rather than one of the most important buildings in country music history. Now Ben Folds, an anchor tenant at the Music Row building, is airing out about how he thinks Nashville should be kept as the musical city its known for and while he’s not opposed to progress, he’s urging the Nashville and the development crew “to take a moment to stand in silence between the grand walls of RCA Studio A and feel the history.”
Folds also urged the city to read his open letter expressing his passion for preserving the Nashville musical landmark and those like it. He then goes on with a lengthy list of the artists who made the studio so great. The full letter can be read below.
