Shure Shares The Stage With Country Music’s Best At ACM Awards

Shure Remains A Favorite At The ACMAs

LAS VEGAS, NV–With Randy Faustino at FOH position and an array of Shure microphones onstage, this year‘s Academy of Country Music Awards was one to remember. “It is always a pleasure to have Shure microphones at this event. They make my job at FOH easy,” stated Faustino.

In its 42nd year, this annual event brings country music legends and rising stars to the stage to reward their achievements, and, more importantly, to perform for the masses, both in the live audience and those watching the broadcast nationwide. Brad Paisley took home the evening‘s award for Top Male Vocalist, and Shure‘s UHF-R Wireless System took the stage for a majority of the evening‘s performances.

Paisley was but one of many Shure endorsers appearing and performing at this year‘s ACMAs. Among others present who maintain a place on Shure‘s roster of allied artists was Vince Gill, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride and Toby Keith, who got a little help in the “stage props that turn heads” category. Toby performed his smash hit “High Maintenance Woman” from his forthcoming June 12th release entitled “Big Dog Daddy.” All Shure endorsers performed on UHF-R Wireless, with the exception of Martina McBride, who opted for her tried and true wired SM58.

ATK Audiotek of Burbank, CA managed sound reinforcement for the star-studded gathering, supplying Shure UHF-R Wireless on a stage dominated almost exclusively by the Niles, IL-based manufacturer. Beyond the official Shure endorsers present who brought the company‘s products into the limelight, other Shure performance moments were provided by Carrie Underwood (UHF-R/Beta 58A), who took Top Female Vocalist honors. Named Top Vocal Duo, Brooks & Dunn relied upon a pair of UHF-R/SM58 for their stage appearance. Rascal Flatts (UHF-R/SM58) took to the stage to perform and pick up the award for Top Vocal Group, while Kenny Chesney, this years Entertainer of the Year, opened the evening‘s performances on a UHF-R/SM58.
