Fame Recording Studios
“Hit Recording Capital of the World” is a rare distinction that certainly fits the Shoals. FAME, the first successful studio in Alabama was established in 1959 by Rick Hall. His FAME Rhythm Section cut hits with some of the greats such as Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Arthur Conley and Clarence Carter. The list of artists that recorded at FAME are among the Who’s Who in the music industry – Duane Allman, The Osmonds, Bobbie Gentry, Wet Willie and Otis Redding. FAME is still cranking out the hits from its staff of song writers and recording artists. Nashville Star winner Angela Hacker and the runner up Zac Hacker are regulars at the studio along with up and coming James LeBlanc, Gary Nichols and Jason Isbell.
