Musical Monday: Muscle Shoals: The Movie and a Winner!



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 .
