Sweet Home Alabama http://apr.org en Muscle Shoals Musicians Take Signature Sound to Franklin, TN http://apr.org/post/muscle-shoals-musicians-take-signature-sound-franklin-tn <p></p><p>It's the Saturday afternoon of the show and several Muscle Shoals musicians are warming up for a sound check. The big drawing card is rhythm and blues legend Percy Sledge, whose signature song, “When A Man Loves A Woman,” was recorded in the Shoals area. It’s a tune bassist David Hood knows well.</p><p>Hood has worked with Percy Sledge for 45 years. His job tonight is to get the band tuned up and ready for Sledge’s arrival just before show time. He says almost five decades of doing that has taught him a few things.</p> Wed, 15 Aug 2012 16:44:40 +0000 Maggie Martin 16293 at http://apr.org Muscle Shoals Musicians Take Signature Sound to Franklin, TN
