MSL - Muscle Shoals, AL aka The Hit Recording Capital of the World (Formerly), The Shoals
1. In 1921, automotive legend Henry Ford, accompanied by Thomas Edison, came to Muscle Shoals with a vision of transforming this area into a metropolis. "I will employ one million workers at Muscle Shoals, and I will a city 75 miles long at Muscle Shoals," stated Mr. Ford. Yeah, that didn't happen, but it's still pretty cool.
2. "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd? You can thank Muscle Shoals for that gem.
3. Other famous artists such as Aretha Franklin, The Osmonds, Mac Davis, and Duane Allman came to Muscle Shoals to record hit songs at Fame.
