A piece of Muscle Shoals music history is coming to Crestline this month.
By combing through decades of articles and music reviews related to recording studio Muscle Shoals Sound, local writer and editor Carla Jean Whitley reconstructed the history of how the studio created a sound that reverberates across generations. The studio is responsible for many of the 400 gold records that have been recorded in the Muscle Shoals area.
The result is her new book, Muscle Shoals Sound Studio: How the Swampers Changed American Music.
Whitley will hold a signing on Aug. 19 at Church Street Coffee & Books in Crestline Village.
