Henagar: The Sound of (Sacred Harp) Music
On this road trip, you will hear the sound so associated with the South of the Civil War period and see the town where Sacred Harp songs were recorded for the movie Cold Mountain.
Music moves all of us, and the music made here in Alabama supplied the rhythms and melodies that have moved the whole world. See where legends were born, walk through the studios where stars recorded their hits, and listen to classic acts along with the latest artists at historic venues, intimate clubs, and out-of-the-way juke joints.

To celebrate the rich history of Alabama music – one solidly intertwined with the history of American music as a whole – we created the Alabama Jammer, a one-of-a-kind guitar made by Gibson's Custom Shop. Over the years, we've put the Alabama Jammer into the hands of many great musicians as they’ve performed in venues across the state.
With dozens of museums, a beautiful riverboat and baseball stadium, historic homes and churches, and great lodging, entertainment and dining venues, it’s no surprise that downtown Montgomery is a mecca for tourists. But why not explore all Montgomery has to offer?
