Shure domination at the Academy of Country Music Awards

Once again, Shure products were in high demand at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Similar to last year’s show, the PSM®1000 was the sole in-ear monitor systems used for all performances.

As far as wireless microphones, the UR2/SM58 was again the clear winner among artists and engineers for the show. Shure Artists Hunter Hayes, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Sheryl Crow, Luke Bryan, and Toby Keith all chose the wireless SM58® while Florida Georgia Line went with the UR2/Beta58A and The Band Perry were on the UR2/KSM9HS.

Other artists who used Shure included Keith Urban and Entertainer of the Year George Strait, both on the UR2/SM58.

Shure Artist Florida Georgia Line took home the Vocal Duo of the Year award, The Band Perry grabbed the Best Vocal Group award and Kacey Musgraves took home the Album of the Year award.
