This event has expired and is here for your information.

Muscle Shoals Sound Studio is celebrating 55 years with Swampaversary, Friday, April 26, 2024
with gates opening at 6:30pm. The Swampers, Jimmy Johnson, David Hood, Roger Hawkins and
Barry Beckett, began operations at the studio in April of 1969 with Cher as their first artist
recording at the studio.

Enjoy the evening with food trucks, vendors, and awesome merchandise available throughout the event. It's not just a concert; it's an experience! This event is apart of our initiative to keep the studio running for another 55 years and beyond. 

During the day the studio is partnering with the Colbert County Animal Shelter for a discounted
pet adoption day at the studio sponsored by Pedigree.

Nashville rockers, “Hippies and Cowboys”, will be headlining the concert on the grounds of the
iconic studio at 3614 Jackson Highway in Sheffield. A songwriter showcase featuring hit
songwriter Mark Naramore will open the show. Food will be available for purchase along with
merchandise from the studio and groovy merchandise for the event. Muscle Shoals Music
Foundation’s mission, rooted in preserving the legacy of 3614 Jackson Hwy, encompasses not
only musical heritage but the continuation of what future generations of musicians will
accomplish. The Muscle Shoals Music Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization,
