‘The Man From Muscle Shoals’ tells his own story in new audiobook
FAME Studios founder Rick Hall produced iconic records for Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, and more. Now he gets behind the microphone to tell his own story.
The Man From Muscle Shoals: My Journey from Shame to Fame chronicles Hall’s life, starting with his poor upbringing in Franklin County, Alabama and leading to the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. There, Hall produced chart-topping hits from soul music to pop to country music. In 1971, Hall was named Billboard’s Producer of the Year for the World and, in 2014, received a Grammy Trustees Award for his significant contribution to the recording industry. The 2013 documentary film, Muscle Shoals, profiles Hall’s life and his career.
The audiobook, published by ListenUp Audiobooks, features Hall reading the first chapter, which was recorded at FAME Studios. The rest of the audiobook is narrated by Jeremy Arthur, who has leant his voice to nearly 100 audiobooks including Whiskey Bottles and Brand-New Cars: The Fast Life and Sudden Death of Lynyrd Skynyrd, by Mark Ribowsky, and Pickett’s Charge, by Charles McNair.
The Man From Muscle Shoals: My Journey From Shame to Fame will be available from ListenUpAudiobooks.com on September 22, 2015.
