NAMM SUMMER SESSION, AUSTIN, TX, July 27, 2007 — Jason Aldean’s self-titled debut album conveys the depth of sound and character that one might expect from a veteran performer. In fact, this country breakthrough artist has been playing clubs since age 14, and after relocating from Georgia to Nashville at age 21, Aldean spent 6 years honing his skills as a songwriter and shopping for the right record deal. His persistence paid off. Aldean has made a name for himself not only in Nashville, but on the touring circuit as well, scoring the top-10 hits “Hicktown” and “Amarillo Sky,” and the chart-topping “Why.” His sophomore project, Relentless (Broken Bow Records), raised the bar even higher, with the lead song and critically acclaimed first single, “Johnny Cash,” a song evoking the take-no-prisoners attitude of the Man in Black. The album flew up the charts with overwhelming response from country radio. In June, “Johnny Cash” hit #1 on CMT’s Top 20 Countdown.

Catering to the demands of his fans, Aldean played over 200 shows in 2006, and has a busy touring schedule for 2007 in support of Relentless. Aldean, an Audio-Technica endorser, explains A-T’s part in getting his sound across faithfully in the live arena: “It’s easy to go out and play every night when you know the equipment you are using sounds great and is always reliable.”

Front of House Engineer and Production Manager Chris Torri comments on his experience implementing the A-T line-up on the road with Aldean, “These are absolutely the best mixes of my life, and the only thing that’s changed is the microphones.” He adds, “The AEW-T5400 [handheld microphone/transmitter] on Jason’s vocals is so clean it’s in your face. It gives you all the body you want without overemphasizing any of the high end. I couldn’t be happier. Audio-Technica has the best customer service, and the product is unbelievable.”

An impressive complement of A-T microphones accompanies Aldean on tour. The Artist Elite® 5000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless System is used with the AEW-T5400 handheld mic/transmitter on Aldean’s vocals. Audio-Technica’s AE4100 is used for backup vocals. Guitar rigs utilize both the AT4047/SV and AT4050. The AT4033/CL is on bass and hi hat; the dual-element AE2500 handles kick-drum duties; the ATM23HE is on rack tom as well as top and bottom snare; the ATM25 captures floor toms; and the AT4033 is on overhead and ride. The Artist Elite 4000 Series Wireless System is used with UniPak™ transmitters for all guitar and bass.
