TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) — Officials are marking the reopening of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in Tuscumbia.
The TimesDaily reports a large crowd gathered Friday outside the facility to watch as FAME Recording Studios founder Rick Hall and the traditional country duo The Secret Sisters cut a blue ribbon marking the occasion.
The state-owned facility has been closed due to financial problems.
Gov. Robert Bentley appointed three new board members for the hall of fame during the summer and the board set a goal of getting the tourist attraction reopened. Bentley said this week that he's glad the hall can again share Alabama's musical heritage with people.
The hall originally opened in 1990. It closed in late 2012 due to financial problems, including reduced state funding.
