Nashville, TN (May 3, 2019)—Country artist Russell Dickerson has been steadily making an impact on the charts, and while he may have more than 200 million streams on Spotify and 30 million views on YouTube, he’s been hitting the road hard the last few years, earning fans the old-fashioned way—with a fun show. While he’ll be opening for Thomas Rhett on the “Very Hot Summer” tour this summer, Dickerson just finished his own co-headlining “The Way Back” tour, carrying an upgraded audio and lighting package from Nashville’s Morris Light & Sound.
After reviewing audio needs, Morris worked with Dickerson’s production manager and front of house engineer, Chris Leonard, who chose a DiGiCo SD9 console based on the show’s input needs, sub-group busses and sample rate.
Having 96 built-in channels allowed Leonard to double patch the stage inputs to create a monitor console within his desk, so that everyone on stage received their own EQ and compression for their ear mixes, aiming to provide a smoother transition between smaller venues to large venues such as arenas.
“The ease and depth of the snapshot section has made not only my job easier, but has been crucial to being able to pull off our show as well as monitors from FOH,” Leonard said.
“From the moment we started the discussion of needing some help audio wise, our account manager, Andrew Sullivan, has been there with solutions that have not only fit our needs, but also our budget. Having another mind to help the design process has been a huge help.”
