To many, Muscle Shoals created the soundtrack of their lives. The famous music studios, FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound are still alive today with their history of successful records trailing behind them. Thousands of people tour the legendary studios every year. The Muscle Shoals Songwriters Association's goal is to create new platforms in Muscle Shoals for future singers, songwriters, musicians and music business professionals. Songwriters from across the nation will descend on Muscle Shoals to share their stories with audiences of all ages.
