From Dirt Floors to Gold Records

Mar 7, 2016

Rick Hall has lived the mythical American story.

As a boy in 1930s rural Alabama, he lived in a house that literally had a dirt floor. Seven decades later, Hall is rich many times over and is considered one of the great producers in music history.

Hall recently released a memoir that documents his life and career.

GLT's Jon Norton caught up with Hall via Skype to talk about the book, and the historic role he played in creating the world famous "Muscle Shoals Sound."
