Alabama is one of five states participating in the Americana Music Triangle’s official launch. The Triangle web guide is a comprehensive telling of music’s greatest story: the birth and rise of nine distinct genres of music from one tiny, mystical slice of the globe. The collective cultural destinations between New Orleans, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and Nashville are defined in the website giving music lovers insider tools and information to facilitate an experience of a lifetime. Aptly sub-titled The Gold Record Road, The Americana Music Triangle is where “history made music, then music made history”.
Muscle Shoals is a must see, hear and feel stop on the Gold Record Road, having produced hundreds of hit records, thousands of songwriter credits, and gave birth to some of the most talented musicians in history. The Muscle Shoals launch is May 5 at the Marriott Shoals Hotel and Spa in Florence. Tourism Director Lee Sentell will be on hand to talk about Alabama’s numerous contributions to the heart of the Triangle.
