Watch the new trailer for the documentary about the legendary Alabama town – Muscle Shoals! The Rolling Stones and Bono celebrate the premiere due to be shown at Sundance Film Festival…

The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Wilson Pickett are just a few of the artists who travelled to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, during the 1960s and 1970s to record hit songs. In that small town, a handful of studios were changing the sound of soul and rock & roll. Now you can watch the trailer for the new documentary Muscle Shoals, from director Greg "Freddy" Camalier, which is set to premiere at Sundance Film Festival being held 17th–24th January in Park City, Utah.

Filled with never-before-seen footage and interviews with an array of artists, Muscle Shoals tells the story of the small northern Alabama town and the many hits that came from the legendary recording studios: Rick Hall's FAME Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, which was started by FAME's former rhythm section, The Swampers.
