Brentwood Developer Says He Plans To Preserve Studio A

CREATED Jun 27, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Brentwood-based developer planning to buy the legendary Studio A said he plans to preserve its history.

On Tuesday, Nashville-based musician Ben Folds wrote an urgent, open letter pleading with the developer to preserve the historic building. Folds said he received a letter on June 20 stating the building was to be sold.

The 47-year-old musician said Friday that his office received word from Bravo Development LLC, a Brentwood-based development firm led by Tim Reynolds, that the company would only purchase the building if they could redevelop facility without losing its history.

Folds became the tenant of the space 12 years ago. Since then, he has renovated the building and recorded numerous records in the facility.

Dolly Parton, Elvis, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Chet Atkins and the Beach Boys are among the many artists who recorded in the studio over the years.
