Ardent Studios, home to the in-house label Ardent Records, was located on National Street in Memphis after founder John Fry moved the studio there from his family's garage in 1966. This is where Big Star recorded their first album #1 Record. Led Zeppelin III was mixed here in 1970, and Ardent also recorded sessions for Stax Records.

In 1971 the studio moved to its current location, where they would go on to work with hundreds of bands including the Replacements, R.E.M. and the White Stripes. This building on National now houses a small deli.
