What you'll do

Welcome to a real and actual recording session with Nashville’s “hired guns” - the professional musicians, engineers, and songwriters who make and record today’s hit songs. At a historic recording studio on Nashville’s famous Music Row, have a front-row seat and watch a working idea of a song be transformed into a production that's ready for radio. Nothing is “staged” or fabricated, it’s how songs have been recorded in Nashville for decades, studio banter and all!
It begins with a brief tour of the studio and broad insight into the recording process. We start by handing out Nashville number charts as we listen to the song and briefly discuss the song's vibe and direction while instruments and parts are decided on. You can listen and observe from the control room, or in headphones in the same room with the musicians if possible.
From the simplicity of a songwriter and their guitar, you'll be amazed at the team's production skills as the musicians fix parts and overdub instruments while the song takes shape. All present are happy to share their own unique experience and knowledge of the music business, so don't hesitate to ask! A quick mix-down is made for anyone who wishes to receive an mp3 of the song by email.
Ideally, this experience is recommended for 3 or more guests. For solo travelers please message first so I can find the best situation for you.
Other things to note
If you wish to share your email I can send you a copy of the recording we made at the studio that day.

Wayne and his fellow musicians and engineer were amazing! We really got to see the process in a way we never could have. Such a great learning experience for a music student!

I booked this experience as a birthday surprise for my husband who’s a drummer. We had the best time observing the recording of two songs! The studio was so cool and all involved in the song making process were friendly and knowledgeable - especially Wayne! I really appreciated his clear communication and flexibility with our arrival time on my husband’s birthday. I would highly recommend this experience!

Wayne was warm and welcoming. It was fun watching them work and develop the song they were working on. Wayne made sure to talk to each person and spent some time talking to our son about the music they were playing. We really enjoyed the experience.

Wayne was so approachable and easy to understand. His casual approavh to a totally professional experience was awesome. This was extremely unique and special. Thanks to him all of his musicians and the studio for such a super COOL idea. I had no idea what went into creating a song! Jerod the engineer and the actual songwriter also had a lot to say. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

A one-of-a-kind experience that we'll never forget! It felt even more authentic and "real" than I expected it to. We couldn't have felt more welcome. Wayne and the band answered every question we had and really gave us a unique, up close and personal perspective on the music industry that we wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. Thanks to Wayne and everyone else involved for this special memory!
