Studio A placed on National Register

The Music Row building home to RCA Studio A has been listed on National Register of Historic Places, The Tennessean reports.

The listing was finalized July 21 and announced today, according to the morning daily.

Located on 17th Avenue South, the building (see here courtesy of Google Maps) faced the wrecking ball before an investor group acquired it. The possible loss of the modernist structure and its iconic studio helped spur debate regarding Music Row’s future.

Ben Folds, the Nashville-based pianist/lyricist/vocalist known for his quirky style, led the drive to spare the brick structure and its landmark studio from demolition.

Nate Rau has more here.
