NASHVILLE (AP) — RCA Studio A on Nashville’s Music Row has been named to the National Register of Historic Places. The studio was developed by Chet Atkins in 1964 and recently was slated for demolition to make way for condos. Philanthropist Aubrey Preston bought it at the last minute from the developer in October. Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings are among the acts who have recorded there. More recently, Ben Folds has rented space there for 12 years and led efforts to save the studio. The historic designation means the site can get federal tax credits and qualify for historic preservation grants.
