Muscle Shoals

I drove up to my parents home in Greenville, South Carolina for the weekend and in my downtime, decided to watch a documentary I had heard a lot about on my last job. Muscle Shoals is about this small town in northwest Alabama that churned out some amazing music beginning in the 1960's, that propelled the careers of Etta James, The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and so many more. It's beautfully produced and incredible to see what this group of country guys were able to pull off together in this tiny town of just 8000. Plus, it's a good way to enjoy a little downtime yourself this holiday. See the trailer, here.
