Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was opened in a building on Jackson Highway in 1969 when musicians from FAME’s Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (known as the Swampers) formed their own studio. The studio moved to this location in the late 1970s. Artists who have recorded here include Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Julian Lennon, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Isaac Hayes, the Oak Ridge Boys, Etta James, Jimmy Buffet and many others. Today the building houses Cypress Moon Studio, a film and music production company. Movies produced by the studio include “When I Find the Ocean,” recipient of five Dove Awards, and “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.” Plans in development include a “Moonwalk” Walk of Fame to honor artists, producers, musicians and publishing companies, as well as writers, directors and actors who have worked at the studio.
