You don't get many chances in life, or in your career, to travel back in time like we just did in Muscle Shoals. Most historic places you visit, you can physically touch.
But while recording Brown Sugar in Muscle Shoals, WE, were the ones being touched. You could feel the spirit, the ghosts, but more importantly... emotion... deep down.
ST said it best...we decided to go on a pilgrimage to Muscle Shoals. I mean where else are you gonna go to re-record the legendary Rolling Stones classic, Brown Sugar. We figured if the Stones themselves, along with Aretha, Wilson Picket, Dylan, Little Richard and so many others tapped into the swampy mojo of the Shoals, then that’s where the magic is. We knew we wanted to respect and pay homage to the original version, but we also dared ourselves to make it our own. With help from members of the original swampers, fame gang and a band of talented southern gypsies, we walked out with a Heart and Soul filled Brown Sugar.
Brown Sugar is just one song on an amazing compilation called @smalltownbigsound
Other artists include... Alicia Keys, Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton, Willie Nelson, Leanne Womack, Grace Potter, Alison Krauss and even more!
