Several weeks ago, and for the second time on Carrie Underwood's Storyteller Tour, I got to see Garrett Goodwin live. This time it was in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center, and as anyone might expect, it was an incredible display from a show standpoint, and most importantly...From a talent standpoint.
You don't see many tours like this these day's, and this one will go down as one the best ever in scope & performance. Carrie Underwood's vocals are so good, it is almost beyond reason at times. Add in her grace, class, & humbleness on stage, it makes her already mythological in Country Music.
Garrett Goodwin has been behind the kit with her for almost a decade now, and there is no doubt he is one of the great performers today. The set-up of his kit, which has been commented on many times...is one the most unique in all of music. And like all great drummers do....he moves around it and through it, effortlessly & perfectly. IOW....This guy does not miss. This last show I had a really good angle on the stage, and could watch him play more closely. It was simply unreal. Him & the entire band are as they say...Like clockwork. Every single one of them is a world class musician, and this is one of the best bands not only in Country Music, but in ALL of music today.
Garrett has used the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14, 6.5 x 14 live for this tour for the show, and also started up with a 4 x 15 in the last several weeks. Regarding the 4 x 15, he mentioned to me that he was "Lovin the snare!". That was very welcome news here.
Thank You Garrett for your time, and for using my gear. I really, really appreciate everything....
