Rick Hall and Muscle Shoals

Grammy-winning super-producer and FAME Studios founder Rick Hall is making an appearance on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s (TBN) flagship program, Praise The Lord, on Friday, August 21st at 10/9c. Hall talks with host Jason Crabb about how finding God has affected the way he views his legendary career. Hall’s new tell-all memoir, The Man from Muscle Shoals, is available now wherever books are sold from Heritage Builders Publishing, with a Foreword by famed music historian Peter Guralnick.

Hall made music history when he founded FAME Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Hall went on to earn international fame and a Grammy for lifetime achievement. In the days when Martin Luther King Jr. was marching for freedom, Hall proved to be a civil rights pioneer through his music. His open collaboration among black and white artists was a revolutionary cultural standard not only to “deep south” Alabama, but to the nation at large. FAME’s colorblind atmosphere, and the raw music it produced, would help shape American culture during its most troubled and tumultuous time.

Hall helped define a generation by pioneering a new sound that would inspire artists, give birth to new kinds of music and launch the careers of hundreds of superstars. Record executives literally flocked to Muscle Shoals for Hall to produce and engineer a mind-boggling array of major artists, including Aretha Franklin, Clarence Carter, Mac Davis, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Alabama, Tom Jones, Allman Brothers, The Osmonds, Shenandoah, Wayne Newton, TG Sheppard, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Alicia Keys and so many more. With more than 300 hit singles to his credit, and more than 40 Gold and Platinum records, Hall is indisputably the top producer of successful Pop, Rock, R&B and Country records in the world.

Since the April release of the book, Hall has received an extensive amount of media coverage, including high-profile interviews with NPR, New York Times, Country Weekly and more.

The Man from Muscle Shoals comes with a bonus DVD of the Grammy Award-winning documentary, Muscle Shoals.
