June 5, 2016 - The Nashville Chapter of the Audio Engineering Society pays tribute to the city’s recording pioneers. "Nashville would never have become a recording center without the engineers," says Country Music Hall of Fame guitarist Harold Bradley. This program will honor audio engineers Lou Bradley (pictured), Mike Bradley, Joe Mills, Ron “Snake” Reynolds, and mastering engineer Denny Purcell with the AES Nashville Lifetime Achievement Award. This year’s honorees engineered thousands of hits by a wide variety of country, pop, and rock artists, including John Anderson, Brooks & Dunn, J.J. Cale, Elvis Costello, Merle Haggard, Jason & the Scorchers, George Jones, the Kentucky Headhunters, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, and Steve Wariner. Photos, audio samples of their work, and video remembrances from the musicians, artists, and producers who worked with them will illustrate the impact of these engineers on the creative and technical evolution of Nashville’s studio scene.
