For the past year the Alabama Music Hall of Fame has been up and down -- open and closed -- but Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau marketing director told this reporter that the beloved museum will reopen October 17th. The website has not yet been updated to reflect this new information.

The museum had lost state funding but that the funding had been restored and is expected to enable the Alabama Music Hall of Fame to continue.

The new hours will be Tuesday through Saturday from 9 to 5. Admission prices will be $8 for adults, $7 for Seniors and Students and $5 for children.

Director of Marketing, Ninon Parker noted that some of the exhibits will be revamped and updated to include more recent music heritage recordings and artists including Civil Wars and Secret Sisters.

Joy Williams and John Paul White are the performing duo the Civil Wars winning a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Folk Album in 2012. The Secret Sisters are Laura and Lydia Rogers, real-life sisters from Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

The new documentary Muscle Shoals might very well have sparked well-deserved interest in that unique musical sound. It is being shown in theaters, and is available On Demand and through iTunes.
