Muscle Shoals: Documentary
Located on the banks of the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of the most creative and defiant music in American history.
At its heart is Rick Hall, who founded FAME Studios. Hall brought black and white musicians together — including during times when the state’s governor wanted "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" — to create music that would last for generations while also giving birth to the unique Muscle Shoals sound, and the unheralded but crucial rhythm section, The Swampers.
