Musical Forces -- And Respect
The Alabama Music Hall of Fame Induction Banquet last week was an incredible melding of old and new, of traditional and contemporary. There was a common thread, though. That thread was respect. It was easy to see the respect young artists like John Paul White and the Secret Sisters have for the inductees.
The inductees, all so very gracious, showed a true appreciation for being honored, for each other and for the many professionals, performers and friends with whom they have shared the good times and the bad of the music business. Many of of the folks they counted as friends were on the stage too, that night, in the all-star band that made everyone sound good!
Special recognition was given to the producers of Muscle Shoals, the documentary about the region’s rich music history that’s gained international acclaim. If you haven’t seen it, see it now! It is an amazing compilation of photos, videos and stories. They show the major influence the area and its people have had on the entire music industry; and the respect that industry has for both.
