Read about the new music documentary ‘Muscle Shoals The Movie’
Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of America’s most creative and defiant music. Even though its population is around 13,000, the music of Muscle Shoals changed the world and sold millions upon millions of copies.
The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Wilson Pickett are just a few of the artists who traveled to Muscle Shoals during the 1960s and early 1970s to record. In that small town, a handful of studios were changing the sound of soul and rock & roll.
Filled with interviews (Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Gregg Allman, Clarence Carter, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Bono) with a wide array of artists and never-before-seen footage, Muscle Shoals tells the story of this northern Alabama town and the many hits that came out of its legendary recording spaces: Rick Hall’s FAME Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.
