Come join the Alabama Music Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 3:30 in celebrating the career of producer/engineer Johnny Sandlin with the unveiling of a bronze star in his honor.
Born in Decatur AL, Johnny Sandlin found fame in the hard edge of Southern Rock. He was a producer with Capricorn Records and also a session musician throughout the 1960s.
As part of the powder keg of talent that blasted Capricorn Records to stardom, Sandlin produced the Allman's "Brothers And Sisters", "Win, Lose Or Draw", and contributed mixing and mastering to "Filmore East" and "Eat A Peach".
He also produced albums for Greg Allman, Gregg and Cher, Eddie Kendricks, The Outlaws, Richard Betts, Elvin Bishop, Wet Willie, Bonnie Bramlett, Alex Taylor, Cowboy, Delbert McClinton, and many others. He has three platinum albums and seven gold albums to his credit.
The Bronze Star ceremony will include a tribute to Johnny Sandlin by David Hood and David Pinkston reflecting on their time working with Sandlin and Kristian Spain reading a list of accomplishments.
This will be a free event and open to the public starting at 3:30 - for more information call the AMHOF at (256) 381-4417.
