“The Muscle Shoals Legacy of FAME” – The conversations.


It’s been some journey, but technically, you can now purchase the book at Alabama Booksmith. I even stopped by last week and signed a few, in the event that someone can’t wait until Monday. By all means, go. Buy. But three. They make great gifts.

It’s no longer mine, it’s yours. And that’s a weird feeling. But I hope you enjoy  it and I hope you learn something about the history of my home that you didn’t already know. I’ll throw another #TBT post up on Thursday, but I wanted to share the list of folks that offered me interviews for this book, alphabetically:

Hannah Aldridge

Walt Aldridge

Jamie Barrier

Barry Billings

Jenn Bryant

Mike Cooley

Dick Cooper

Doc Dailey

Chalmers Davis

Alecia Elliott

Tim Facok

Joey Flippen

Zion Godchaux

Rodney Hall

Jimbo Hart

Dillon Hodges

Tonya Holly

David Hood

Patterson Hood

Jason Isbell

Jay Johnson

Jimmy Johnson

Dylan LeBlanc

Rob Malone

Russell Mefford

Jimmy Nutt

Laura Rogers

Ben Tanner

Chris Tompkins

Shonna Tucker

John Paul White

I also managed to use material from previous conversations with:

Lee Bains III

BJ Barham

Elliott McPherson

Spooner Oldham

Dave Schools

I let them tell it themselves, largely.

The first signing is at Alabama Booksmith on June 29 from 4-6 p.m. I’ll be in Florence bookending Handy Fest, on Saturday July 18 at Pegasus and on Friday July 24 at the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library. Those will include conversations and performances. I’ll be in Montgomery on July 10 from 11-2 p.m. at Goat Hill.

I hope y’all come out. Thanks for your support.
