Neill Acuff, the third of their five children; the Acuffs were a prominent family in Union County. Roy's paternal grandfather, Coram Acuff, had been a Tennessee state senator, his maternal grandfather was a local physician. Roy's father was an accomplished fiddler and a Baptist preacher, his mother was proficient on the piano , during Roy's early years the Acuff house was a popular place for local gatherings. At such gatherings, Roy would amuse people by balancing farm tools on his chin, he learned to play the harmonica and jaw harp at an early age. In , the Acuff family relocated to Fountain City , a few miles south of Maynardville.
Roy attended Central High School, where he sang in the school chapel's choir and performed in "every play they had. He was a three-sport standout at Central and, after graduating in , was offered a scholarship to Carson-Newman University but turned it down. He played with several small baseball clubs around Knoxville , worked at odd jobs, boxed. In , Acuff tried out for the Knoxville Smokies , a minor-league baseball team affiliated with the New York Giants. A series of collapses in spring training following a sunstroke , ended his baseball career; the effects left him ill for several years, he suffered a nervous breakdown in While recovering, Acuff began to hone his fiddle skills playing on the family's front porch after the sun went down, his father gave him several records of regionally renowned fiddlers, such as Fiddlin' John Carson and Gid Tanner , which were important influences on his early style.
In , Dr. Hauer's medicine show, which toured the southern Appalachian region, hired Acuff as one of its entertainers; the purpose of the entertainers was to draw a large crowd to whom Hauer could sell medicines for various ailments. While on the medicine show circuit, Acuff met the legendary Appalachian banjoist Clarence Ashley , from whom he learned " The House of the Rising Sun " and " Greenback Dollar ", both of which Acuff recorded.
As the medicine show lacked microphones, Acuff learned to sing loud enough to be heard above the din, a skill that would help him stand out on early radio broadcasts. In , Acuff left the medicine show circuit and began playing at local shows with various musicians in the Knoxville area, where he had become a celebrity and fixture in local newspaper columns; that year, the guitarist Jess Easterday and the Hawaiian guitarist Clell Summey joined Acuff to form the Tennessee Crackerjacks, which performed on the Knoxville radio stations WROL and WNOX.
Fans remarked to Acuff how "clear" his voice was coming through over the radio, important in an era when singers were drowned out by string band cacophony ; the popularity of Acuff's rendering of the song " The Great Speckled Bird " helped the group land a contract with ARC, for which they recorded several dozen tracks in Needing to complete a song commitment, the band recorded two ribald tunes—including "When Lulu's Gone"—but released them under a pseudonym , the Bang Boys.
The group split from ARC in over a separate contract dispute. Although their first audition went poorly, the band's second audition impressed Opry founder George D. Hay and producer Harry Stone , they offered the group a contract that year. On Hay and Stone's suggestion, Acuff changed the group's name to the Smoky Mountain Boys, referring to the mountains near where he and his bandmates grew up.
Shortly after the band joined the Opry, Clell Summey left the group and was replaced by the dobro player Beecher Kirby—best known by his stage name Bashful Brother Oswald—whom Acuff had met in a Knoxville bakery earlier that year. Acuff's powerful lead vocals and Kirby's dobro playing and high-pitched backing vocals gave the band its distinctive sound.
Recording studio A recording studio is a specialized facility for sound recording and audio production of instrumental or vocal musical performances, spoken words, other sounds. They range in size from a small in-home project studio large enough to record a single singer-guitarist, to a large building with space for a full orchestra of or more musicians. Ideally both the recording and monitoring spaces are specially designed by an acoustician or audio engineer to achieve optimum acoustic properties.
Recording studios may be used to record singers, instrumental musicians, voice-over artists for advertisements or dialogue replacement in film, television, or animation, foley, or to record their accompanying musical soundtracks; the typical recording studio consists of a room called the "studio" or "live room" equipped with microphones and mic stands, where instrumentalists and vocalists perform.
The engineers and producers listen to the live music and the recorded "tracks" on high-quality monitor speakers or headphones. There will be smaller rooms called "isolation booths" to accommodate loud instruments such as drums or electric guitar amplifiers and speakers, to keep these sounds from being audible to the microphones that are capturing the sounds from other instruments or voices, or to provide "drier" rooms for recording vocals or quieter acoustic instruments such as an acoustic guitar a or fiddle. Major recording studios have a range of large and hard-to-transport instruments and music equipment in the studio, such as a grand piano , Hammond organ , electric piano.
Recording studios consist of three or more rooms: The "live room" of the studio where the vocalists sing and instrumentalists play their instruments, with their singing and playing picked up by microphones and, for electric and electronic instruments, by connecting the instruments' outputs or DI unit outputs to the mixing board. Isolation booths are small sound-insulated rooms with doors, designed for instrumentalists.
Vocal booths are designed rooms for singers. This equipment may make noise. Recording studios are designed around the principles of room acoustics to create a set of spaces with the acoustical properties required for recording sound with precision and accuracy; this will consist of both room treatment and soundproofing to prevent sound from leaving the property. A recording studio has to be soundproofed on its outer shell as well, to prevent noises from the surrounding streets and roads from being picked up by microphones. A recording studio may include additional rooms, such as a vocal booth—a small room designed for voice recording, as well as one or more extra isolation booths for loud guitar stacks and extra control rooms.
Though sound isolation is a key goal, the musicians, audio engineers and record producers still need to be able to see each other, to see cue gestures and conducting by a bandleader. As such, the "live room", isolation booths, vocal booths and control room have windows.

He worked as a sharecropper into the s, his fast syncopated style of playing was meant for dancing.
On occasion, a medicine show would come through the area. Hurt recalled that one wanted to hire him: "One of them wanted me, but I said no because I just never wanted to get away from home. When Narmour got a chance to record for Okeh Records as a prize for winning first place in a fiddle contest, he recommended Hurt to Okeh producer Tommy Rockwell. While in Memphis, he recalled seeing "many, many blues singers It was something. I sat on a chair, they pushed the microphone right up to my mouth and told me that I couldn't move after they had found the right position. I had to keep my head still.
Oh, I was nervous, my neck was sore for days after. Hurt attempted further negotiations with Okeh to record again, but his records were commercial failures. Okeh went out of business during the Great Depression , Hurt returned to Avalon and obscurity, working as a sharecropper and playing at local parties and dances. Hurt's renditions of "Frankie" and " Spike Driver Blues " were included in The Anthology of American Folk Music in which generated considerable interest in locating him; when a copy of "Avalon Blues" was discovered in , it led musicologist Dick Spottswood to locate Avalon in an atlas, ask Tom Hoskins, traveling that way, to enquire after Hurt.
When Hoskins arrived in Avalon the first person he asked directed him to Hurt's cabin. Hoskins persuaded an apprehensive Hurt to perform several songs for him, to ensure that he was genuine. Hoskins was convinced and, seeing that Hurt's guitar playing skills were still intact, encouraged him to move to Washington, D.
