Happy Musical Monday!
Today I want to celebrate a brand new movie about the amazing music that's come out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
I know I've been a bit negative on my blog lately about my home state, but truly this is wonderful movie is worth celebrating and bragging about! I recently viewed the movie, and I was blown. Away.
Here is the trailer:
I hope you'll see this movie. You'll be shocked at the music recorded here in Alabama! The movie ends with Alicia Keys recording a fantastic song. :D
Percy Sledge is from Muscle Shoals. He grew-up singing in the cotton fields, entertaining older folks while they worked. Here's "When a Man Loves a Woman," recorded in The Shoals at Norala Sound Studio in 1966 .
