Malaco Records torn down Wednesday following tornado damage

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

One portion of the historic Malaco Records building in Jackson was reduced to rubble Wednesday morning.

Malaco Records consisted of three buildings.

But one of those buildings was completely destroyed after an April 15 tornado swept through Jackson.

Officials from Malaco Records plan to rebuild.

The recording studio has been a part of Jackson for more than 40 years.

"It's a big piece of history for not only Jackson, but the state and it's a sad moment it's been here for 40 years, a lot of history has been made here for the United States," Kent Bruce of Malaco Records said.

It will cost over $1 million to replace everything the tornado destroyed in Malaco Records.
