How Music Changed

    We reach a sad part of our story, where the once mighty American Studios comes to the end of the road. It’s especially sad, because the team was still doing excellent work, and all indications pointed to a bright future, but restlessness and distrust between Chips Moman and his team brought about a tangible divisiveness, made irreparable once he made the decision to moved American Studios to Atlanta. It’s incredible to note how quickly things fell apart. Here is the story of how it happened.
