Les Banks of the legendary Ryman Auditorium and Cliff Miller, who has handled audio for nearly every major bluegrass act, explain which mics and techniques deliver that pure acoustic sound from the stage to the audience.
Since their formation, Dailey & Vincent have been a favorite of mine in the bluegrass genre. They brought Shure into the picture early on, and we have been enjoying this relationship ever since. The group was the first to perform at the S.N. Shure Theater inside of Shure HQ. I told Jamie and Darrin last […]
I’ve been very fortunate to have attended some wonderful concert events over the years. There have been memorable moments at cool venues and so many great artists. When I heard about Bluegrass Underground here in Tennessee, I was certainly intrigued. It was time to go see this for myself. I set out from my house […]

A voice with experience. Rhonda has been touring and performing for most of her life. Her schedule every year is so crazy that it’s a wonder she has any time to record. This year, she found time to record a double CD entitled Only Me. One CD with bluegrass songs, the other with country songs. […]
Just last month, I wrote about Rhonda becoming the 2014 inductee into the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America’s Hall of Greats (article here). I just happened to look up this month’s schedule for Music City Roots and Rhonda was headlining the show on March 12. That day, I loaded up the […]
If you want to see what a busy touring schedule looks like, look up Shure Artist Rhonda Vincent on Google and find her tour schedule. Ever since I meet Rhonda back in 2004, I was very impressed by her performances I had seen at the IBMA Bluegrass Awards. Her group, The Rage, was always super […]
Frankly, it doesn’t get much better than this! One of the hottest (if not THE hottest) vocal groups in Bluegrass came through Nashville during their constant touring cycle to perform for an installment of Bluegrass Nights. I was able to make it down for their soundcheck, just in time to hear their amazing harmonies […]
So how many people get a brand new car on their 50th Birthday? I’m betting there’s a good number of people that may have gotten new vehicles as presents. But when you are 50 and you’ve never gotten an NEW vehicle, it’s a big deal. Especially when you are the Queen of Bluegrass music! Rhonda […]
Bluegrass Artist and Shure Endorser Josh Williams stopped in at the Nashville AR office to pick up a microphone from me. During his visit, he had me look up a video that has gone viral on YouTube. Before we watched the video, he explained to me that the guy who filmed it only captured this […]
Joining a band for load-in at a venue on a Saturday morning is not the typical duty associated with this gig in Artist Relations at Shure. Occasionally, you’re asked to go above-and-beyond and help out a band or bands coming to town and in need of a few microphones. In this instance, I arrived equipped […]
January 9, 2012 Here we are, fresh into 2012, and what better way to kick of a new year than with a great new album! Darrin Vincent, one half of Bluegrass super group Dailey & Vincent strolled down the hall with a copy of their new record, The Gospel Side of DAILEY & VINCENT, along […]
May 4, 2011 Music City Roots – The Civil Wars & more Loveless Cafe, West Nashville, TN My musical roots were planted by my parents.
