Flatwood Studio

view of our 900 sq ft tracking roomcontrol room

Track, overdub and mix away from city distractions in our 900 sq ft tracking room, large, comfortable control room, the Soundcraft recording and mixing console from The Grand Ole Opry mated to a MCI JH24 2inch analog deck set to record at +8, comfortable lounge, five iso booths, and more..

Flatwood Studio is located on a 40 acre farm that dates back to 1840. During the early days of The Grand Ole Opry the farm belonged to Spencer Jordon, Uncle Dave Macon's road manager. Uncle Dave would drive his mule propelled wagon up from his farm a little south of here and ride with Mr. Jordon since Uncle Dave didn't drive. Later when Spencer Jordon retired Uncle Dave hired The Delmore Brothers as opening act and drivers.

Close enough to Nashville and all the city has to offer without the potential problems and distractions of actually being in the city. Pros and new comers alike will appreciate our attention to detail and years of experience making music.

With hundreds, if not thousands of recording studios to choose from
we appreciate those who have found us.

    This eastern red cedar tree growing near the studio is our symbol. When I told my friend Joe Longman Norris of the Free Cherokee that it had been struck by lightning he drove 10 hours through the night and camped beneath its branches. As he chanted and smoked a Red-tailed Hawk circled three times above his head. He told us to use the tree wisely and to treat it with respect. "Put the wood in the four corners of your studio for protection from evil spirits." This we did!

    1997 The studio is handmade of local hardwoods.
    Russell Smith (The Amazing Rhythm Aces) put it this way:
    "It's like recording inside a guitar. It sounds wonderful!".
    Can we quote you on that, Russell?
    "Yes, absolutely."
