Hall, 85, founded Florence Alabama Music Enterprises (FAME) Recording Studios in 1959 where he recorded stars such as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, George Jones, Brenda Lee, Paul Anka and The Osmonds, among the many.
Artists including Jason Isbell shared memories of Hall and praised his contributions to the industry.
Isbell tweeted: “Rick Hall and his family gave me my first job in the music business, and nobody in the industry ever worked harder. Nobody. American music wouldn’t be the same without his contributions. His death is a huge loss to those of us who knew him and those who didn’t.”
