Musicians like Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan all recorded inside the studio.    

It temporarily became a memorial for Russell after the musician died last November.

The Oklahoma Historic Preservation Review Committee will vote Thursday to decide if it will be nominated for the National Register.
