Muscle Shoals Sound Studios was founded in 1969 in Sheffield, Alabama by four musicians known as “The Swampers”, or more formally, The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. The studio location at 3614 Jackson Highway was originally closed in 1979, but was partially restored in the early 2000s, and has become a tourist destination for music fans.

The studio played host to recording sessions for a who’s-who of music industry icons including The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Joe Cocker, Bob Seger, Wilson Pickett, Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, George Michael, and Cat Stevens. Cher’s album 3614 Jackson Highway was named for the studio’s street address.

The Rolling Stone’s single “Wild Horses” from their 1971 album Sticky Fingers was recorded at Muscle Shoals.
