Me and Jen love watching live music whenever we can. Lately that has been restricted to live television events, just because of budget and kids. So we watch all the music awards we can find and this usually includes a host of country music shows, which my wife is a big fan of. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always said that some of the best live sound comes from country music, especially drums, acoustic guitars, and vocals.
Anywho… I always notice that Martina McBride almost always uses a standard, wired, Shure SM58 (not even a Beta). When all the other vocalists are using the latest and greatest of wireless gear, she’s standing there with a $100 microphone. I wonder why?
