About the station
The Musicians Hall of Fame not only recognizes the stars who are well known to the public, but the musicians who played on so many hit records as studio players. For example, The Monkees, sang on their records but used the same group of studio musicians as The Beach Boys on their most famous recordings. These same players recorded with Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley. The museum houses the instruments used on hundreds of these iconic recordings. For example, Joe Osborn’s Fender jazz bass used on all The Carpenters records, Mamas and the Papas, The Grass Roots, Simon and Garfunkel to name a few while in California and many more country hits after moving to Nashville such as “Lucille” by Kenny Rogers. In 2016 the museum inducted Garth Brooks and his studio musicians, The G-Men. They have played on virtually every record he has recorded from 1988 until now, not to mention individually recording with Elvis, Crystal Gayle, George Jones & Tammy Wynette. The museum houses the control board from Jack’s Tracks Recording Studio where Garth recorded most of his hits, as well as instruments from all the G-Men including instruments Garth used in the studio that you have heard on over 70 million albums to date purchased by his fans.
