The Alabama town that gave a home to the legendary FAME recording studio – famously given a shout-out in Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" – gets its due in this documentary (watch an exclusive sneak peek here). Director Greg "Freddy" Camalier traces the history of the Muscle Shoals sound, which brought white and black musicians together in soulful harmony at the height of Civil Rights-era turmoil. Such luminaries as Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, the late Etta James, Alicia Keys and Bono testify to Muscle Shoals' lasting legacy.
