County Q
648 West Iris Drive
Nashville, TN 37204
(615) 298-1434

Don't you hate it when a company's site drones on about all their incredible achievements in "The Industry" We're not into that. Suffice it to say that County Q has been at the heart of Nashville's legit recording world since '85. When we first opened for business, Phil Collins and Wham ruled the pop charts, the Soviet Union was still intact, and the cost of a demo in Nashville was about $75. Recording technology was only a few steps removed from that bird beak record player used by the Flintstones. Today, County Q has grown, evolved, morphed into a six room / all Pro Tools recording campus. Everything about music recording has changed in the interim. County Q has changed a ton also, however, we’ve never stopped caring about making great records and we'll never stop caring about our clients' experience here. Come see for yourself....more
