Singing River Sculptures--Muscle Shoals
Singing River Sculptures is a series of monumental scale sculptures honoring the area's 50-year old music heritage. The project also honors the aluminum industry, a mainstay of the region's economy for several generations. Sculpted from recycled aluminum donated by Wise Alloys of Muscle Shoals, the sculptures rise 18 to 20 feet into the air and are currently located in Sheffield and Muscle Shoals.

Unveiled in November, 2014, the second in the Singing River sculpture series depicts a bass player sitting on a session stool. Sculptor Audwin McGee modeled the work on Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section bassist David Hood. This sculpture is well-lighted at night and was also made from recycled aluminium donated by Wise Alloys.
