Muscle Shoals is the largest city in Colbert County, Alabama, United States. It is located along the Tennessee River in the northern part of the state and, as of the 2010 census, the population of Muscle Shoals was 13,146. The estimated population in 2019 was 14,575. Both the city and the Florence-muscle Shoals Metropolitan Area (including four cities in Colbert and Lauderdale counties) are commonly called "the Shoals" Northwest Alabama Regional Airport serves the Shoals region, located in the northwest section of thestate. The city was named for a former natural feature of the Tennessee river, a shallow zone where mussels were gathered, and settlers named it Muscle Shoals. Since the 1960s, the city has been known for music, including FAME Studios in the late 1950s and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in 1969. Cherokee people knew of this place as, "the place of clams or mussels". After the Revolution, Cherokee attitudes toward the new U.S. republic were divided, as settlers increasingly encroached on their territory. An anti-American faction, dubbed the Chickamauga, separated from more conciliatory Cherokees, and moved into present-day south-central and southeastern Tennessee. They claimed Muscle Shoals as part of their domain. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as Europeans entered the area in greater number, it became a center of historic land disputes. The Ford Motor Company did build and operate a plant for many years in the Listerhill community, three miles east of muscle Shoals.

Etymology

Cherokee people knew of this place as, "the place of clams or mussels" One is that it was named for a former natural feature of the Tennessee River, a shallow zone where mussels were gathered, and settlers named as Muscle Shoals. When the area was first settled, the distinct spelling of "mussel" to refer to the shellfish had not yet been locally adopted. The word Muscle Shoals is now used to describe the city of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The city is also known as Muscle Springs, Muscle Shoals and Muscle Shoals Beach. The name Muscle Shoals comes from the word "mussels" which means "to gather" or "to catch" in English. The town's nickname is Muscle Shoals because of the large number of mussels that were found in the area at the time of the city's founding. It also means "Muscle Shoals" in Spanish, which is the same language used in the U.S. to mean "shallow water" and "muscle" in the Spanish language. It is also called Muscle Shoals in English because it is located in a shallow area of the river, which was once known as a mussels' habitat. It was also called "Muscles Shoals" by the Cherokee people, who called the area "Musical Shoals" because it was a place where the mussels gathered. The current name is derived from the name of a natural feature in the river that was once called the Muscle Shoals River, and is now known as "Mus Muscle".

History

The area of Muscle Shoals was a part of the historic Cherokee hunting grounds dating to at least the early eighteenth century. Many Cherokee fought against the rebels during the late American Revolutionary War, hoping to expel them from their territories. Cherokee attitudes toward the new U.S. republic were divided, as settlers increasingly encroached on their territory. An anti-American faction, dubbed the Chickamauga, separated from more conciliatory Cherokees, and moved into present-day south-central and southeastern Tennessee. They claimed Muscle Shoals as part of their domain. When Anglo-Americans attempted to settle the region in the 1780s and 1790s, the chickamaugas bitterly resisted them. The Upper Creek, residing in what is now north and central Alabama, also resented any European or Euro-American presence in the region. In 1922 Henry Ford tried to buy the nitrate works and the unfinished dam. The Michigan car manufacturer and industrialist proposed leasing the uncompleted hydro-electric dam at Muscle Shoals on the Tennessee River in Alabama. The project of hydroelectric power on the area languished until the Great Depression. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration created the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1933 to construct infrastructure and install an electrical system in the rural area, using newly generated electricity from the dam complex. The first plant started producing nitrates two weeks after the armistice, but the dam was not completed until 1924. The site was particularly desirable, as it controlled access to fine cotton-producing land immediately to its south.

Music

Muscle Shoals is home to FAME Studios, founded by Rick Hall, where Arthur Alexander, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and numerous others recorded. Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was founded by the musicians known as The Swampers. They worked with Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, the Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers, and others. George Michael recorded an early, unreleased version of "Careless Whisper" with Jerry Wexler in Muscle Shoals in 1983. Bettye LaVette recorded her Grammy nominated album "Scene of the Crime" at FAME in 1972. The original Muscle Shoals sound Studios were located at 3614 Jackson Highway in Sheffield but that site was closed in 1979 when the studio relocated to 1000 Alabama Avenue in Sheffield. The studio in the Alabama Avenue building closed in 2005; as of 2018 it houses a movie production company, which also hosts tours and concerts at the venue.Although Muscle Shoals is no longer the "Hit Recording Capital of the World" it was in the 1960s and 1970s, the music continues to be recorded there. In the early 21st century, Florence native Patterson Hood, son of "Swamper" David Hood, found fame as a member of the alternative rock group Drive-By Truckers. Siblings and Muscle Shoals natives Angela Hacker (winner) and Zac Hacker (second place) were the top two finishing finalists on the 2007 season of Nashville Star, a country-music singing competition.
