Product Description

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, legendary artists like Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan traveled to North Alabama to record with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm section, also known as the Swampers. But Alabama hasn’t just attracted musical stars with its talent–it also has a history of creating stars of its own. Join author and musician C.S. Fuqua as he showcases the breadth of Alabama’s musical talent through the profiles and stories of its historic performers and innovators. From the “father of the blues,” W.C. Handy, to Hank Williams, the originator of modern country music, to folk music hero Odetta and everyone in between, this is an unprecedented compendium of Alabama’s groundbreaking music makers.
