Roe Erister Rick Hall (born January 31, 1932) is an American record producer, songwriter, music publisher and musician who is best known as the owner and proprietor of the FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
Biography,Hall was born to a family of sharecroppers in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, and was raised in Franklin County, Alabama. He moved to Rockford, Illinois, as a teenager, working as an apprentice toolmaker, and began playing in local bar bands. When he was drafted for the Korean War, he declared himself a conscientious objector, joined the honor guard of the Fourth United States Army, and played in a band which also included Faron Young and the fiddler Gordon Terry.He later returned to Alabama to work, but, after both his young wife and father died in quick succession, he decided to support himself by playing music and joined Carmol Taylor and the Country Pals, a group who appeared on a weekly regional radio show at WERH in Hamilton, Alabama. He and the saxophonist Billy Sherrill began writing songs together and formed an R&B band, the Fairlanes, fronted by the singer Dan Penn, with Hall playing bass.Hall had his first songwriting successes in the late 1950s, when George Jones recorded his song Achin, Breakin Heart, Brenda Lee recorded Shell Never Know, and Roy Orbison recorded Sweet and Innocent. In 1959, Hall and Sherrill accepted an offer from Tom Stafford, the owner of a recording studio, to help set up a new music publishing company in the town of Florence, to be known as Florence Alabama Music Enterprises, or FAME. However, in 1960, Sherrill and Stafford dissolved the partnership, leaving Hall with rights to the studio name. Hall then set up a studio in Muscle Shoals, where one of his first recordings was Arthur Alexanders You Better Move On. The commercial success of the record gave Hall the financial resources to establish a new, larger FAME recording studio.Halls successes continued after the Atlanta-based agent Bill Lowery brought him acts to record, and the studio produced hits for Tommy Roe, Joe Tex, the Tams, and Jimmy Hughes. However, in 1964, Halls regular session group—[David Briggs (American musician)|David Briggs]], Norbert Putnam, Jerry Carrigan, Earl Peanut Montgomery, and Donnie Fritts—became frustrated at being paid minimum union-scale wages by Hall, and left Muscle Shoals to set up a studio of their own in Nashville. Hall then pulled together a new studio band, including Spooner Oldham, Jimmy Johnson, David Hood and Roger Hawkins, and continued to produce hit records.In 1966, he helped license Percy Sledges When a Man Loves a Woman, produced by Quin Ivy, to Atlantic Records, which then led to a regular arrangement under which Atlantic would send musicians to Halls Muscle Shoals studio to record. The studio produced further hit records for Wilson Pickett, James and Bobby Purify, Aretha Franklin, Clarence Carter, Otis Redding and Arthur Conley, enhancing Halls reputation as a white Southern producer who could produce and engineer hits for black Southern soul singers. He also produced recordings for other artists, including Etta James. However, his fiery temperament led to the end of the relationship with Atlantic after he got into a fistfight with Aretha Franklins husband, Ted White, in late 1967. The session group, by now generally known as the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, split up shortly afterwards, several of them establishing a new recording studio, Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.In 1969, FAME Records, with artists including Candi Staton, Clarence Carter and Arthur Conley, established a distribution deal with Capitol Records. Hall then turned his attention away from soul music towards mainstream pop, producing hits for the Osmonds, Paul Anka, Tom Jones, and Donny Osmond. In 1971, he was named Producer of the Year by Billboard magazine, a year after having been nominated for a Grammy in the same category. Later in the decade, Hall moved back towards country music, producing hits for Mac Davis, Bobbie Gentry, Jerry Reed and the Gatlin Brothers. He also worked with the songwriter and producer Robert Byrne to help a local bar band, Shenandoah, top the national Hot Country Songs chart several times in the 1980s and 1990s.Halls publishing staff of in-house songwriters wrote some of the biggest country hits in those decades, for artists including Ronnie Milsap, Barbara Mandrell, Alabama, Earl Thomas Conley, John Michael Montgomery, Jerry Reed, Shenandoah, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Dixie Chicks and many others. His publishing catalog includes the megahit I Swear written by Frank Myers and Gary Baker.Halls life and career are profiled in the 2013 documentary film Muscle Shoals.
