Artists from the national music scene come to The Muscle Shoals to write, produce and record the music with the unique sounds.  The Gold Record Room on the first floor of the SunTrust Bank Building in downtown Florence has memorabilia from Muscle Shoals Music history.

The Gold Record Room

In recognition of the musical heritage of the region, a sculpture has been commissioned for each of the cities in The Muscle Shoals.  The representation selected by the Singing River Statue Committee for the City of Florence will be a 20 foot tall abstract sculpture designed by Eric Nubbe, assisted by Craig Wedderspoon, and will be installed at a gateway to the City of Florence.


Music continues to be a part of the identity of the creative community well into the new century.
