Three Shoals natives and Gregg Alman's last album recorded in the Shoals are all up for Grammy nominations.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are nominated for Best Americana Album for "The Nashville Sound."

The Secret Sisters, which include Lydia and Laura Rodgers, snagged a nomination in the Best Folk Album category with their album, "You Don't Own Me Anymore."

Gregg Allman's "Southern Blood" album is also nominated in the Best Americana Album category. Allman passed away in May and had recently finished his last albumn at FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals.

Rodney Hall, the general manager at FAME, told WAAY 31 the Grammy nominations are proof the hits keep coming.

"Every year the Shoals is involved in the Grammys, not just at FAME but other studios that local. There is a resurgence in Muscle Shoals music, and it's been going on the last ten years, and it just continues to build," said Hall.

Hall said it was a great honor to work with Gregg Allman and his associates.

"Our staff and the guys they brought in to work on the record were super pumped to be involved with the record. Then to have it nominated for a Grammy is over the top," said Hall.

If Allman's latest album wins, Don Was the producer on the album, and the engineer, Don Srygley will also win a Grammy.

The Grammy Awards will take place at the end of January.
