The legendary country group Shenandoah takes the stage in the premiere of a brand new television music series, Thursday, July 6 at 10:00pm on Alabama Public Television. Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire’s band from Muscle Shoals are the perfect choice to launch MUSCLE SHOALS TO MUSIC ROW, a series that is shot and produced in that city which is known around the world.

A few years ago, the beautifully-crafted documentary Muscle Shoals by filmmaker Greg Camalier brought national attention to the northwest Alabama city and its tremendous impact on the American music industry. As one singer/songwriter joked at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony a few years ago, you can’t throw a stick in Muscle Shoals without hitting a guitar player. Talented musicians from the Shoals area continue to make waves in the music industry, and make their way to Nashville’s Music Row, famous for its place in country, gospel and contemporary Christian music.

MUSCLE SHOALS TO MUSIC ROW, produced for Alabama Public Television by the Sam Phillips Music Corporation, features talented performers from the Shoals area as well as artists and songwriters from Music Row and around the world. The company has been producing a two-hour radio and webcast version of Muscle Shoals to Music Row Live since 2003 on, and airing it live on their radio stations in the Tennessee Valley (WXFL-FM 96.1 Florence/Muscle Shoals) and Southern Middle Tennessee (WLVS-FM 106.5). The new television show will give these performers a statewide audience in Alabama – and possibly in other states in the future.

“We’re excited to have this opportunity to show the incredible musical talent performing here in Alabama,” says APT executive director Roy Clem. “It’s great to be working with Big River Broadcasting and the family of the legendary Sam Phillips and continuing his legacy of discovering great talent and sharing their music with the world.”

MUSCLE SHOALS TO MUSIC ROW will air Thursday nights at 10:00pm and Saturdays at 11:00pm beginning July 6. Upcoming episodes include performances by The Steel Drivers, James Otto, Big Al Anderson, The LoCash Cowboys, Jason Matthews, and a special “Tribute to Charlie Rich” recorded at Fame Studios.
