Judy Hood and Debbie Wilson "Alabama Music: The Magic of the Muscle Shoals Sound"
The Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was founded in 1969 by four session musicians - The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section - now affectionately known as The Swampers. The studio hosted such greats as The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paul Simon, Bob Segar, Rod Stewart, and Cat Stevens. The old studio, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in June of 2006, was purchased by the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation in 2013 and restored to its previous glory with an interior reminiscent of the 1970s and relevant recording equipment and paraphernalia. Since its reopening in 2017, the studio has seen visitors from all 50 states, 40 different countries and even continents. Whether you have visited the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio or have it on your bucket list, you will be informed and entertained and reminded of the creativity and ingenuity of the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio!
Judy Hood - wife of Swaper bassist, David Hood - is Chairman of the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation. She is a marketing/communications professional whose career spans more than three decades in corporate communications, music tourism, and economic growth. Debbie Wilson is the Executive Director of the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation. She has worked in tourism, radio, television, and location filming in various parts of the country. Judy and Debbie work as a team to enhance the legacy and sustain the future of the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound.
