MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) -

Muscle Shoals is celebrating the release of ‘Muscle Shoals.'

The documentary which celebrates the legendary FAME Studios and its legacy in the music industry, is out on DVD. Dozens of people were in line waiting to get copies autographed by studio founder Rick Hall and members of rhythm group The Swampers.

People began lining up around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, and the line quickly wrapped up and down several aisles of the Muscle Shoals Walmart where the event was being held.

One music fan said the wait was well worth the reward. "I've always been a big music fan my entire life. What's bigger than coming to meet the people that made my hometown what it is," said Vince Lyle.

‘Muscle Shoals' currently holds a 97% "Fresh" rating on meta-review site Rotten Tomatoes, which aggregates reviews from both mainstream movie critics and independent reviewers.
