In 1969, the group of studio musicians known as the "Swampers" parted ways with Rick Hall and FAME Studios and opened their new recording studio located on Jackson Highway aptly named Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. The Jackson Highway studio cranked out the hits for over a decade until April 1979 when the Swampers closed down the Jackson Highway location and moved to the larger and more updated location at 1000 Alabama Ave. For over 25 years, they continued to produce some of the most iconic performers such as Bob Seger, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Julian Lennon, Glenn Fry of the Eagles, Jimmy Buffett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Delbert McClinton, Dire Straits, George Michael, Etta James, Jimmy Buffet, and countless others.
In 2005, this complex was purchased by a movie production company owned by Tonya S. Holly and was renamed Cypress Moon Studios. Since then, the recording studios have remained fully operational and has retained it's magic for producing not only amazing albums and singles, it has been involved in numerous film casting, production, and soundtrack projects.
