Wishbone Studios was established in 1976 during the peak of what is today known as “Muscle Shoals Music”.  Along with Fame Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, Wishbone played a major part, recording hits of the era as well as establishing and publishing successful songwriters and musicians.  7-time CMA Country Musician of the Year, Mac McAnally spent his early years here, honing his craft.  He also co-wrote and demoed Alabama’s “Old Flame” in the building.


Today the studio is owned by songwriter/producer Billy Lawson, who continues to produce a variety of music products, from major label recording and song demos to advertising jingles.
