RUSS WHITMAN ON CRAIG MORGAN'S AMERICAN STORIES TOUR-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--6.5 X 14~

Had a great time last month at Craig Morgan's American Stories Tour. The tour was a scaled back & informal show, with a lot of musical guests & stories. To me, it was like a "Musical Fireside Chat". The reviews on the show were great from A-Z, and it really was a ton of fun to see this. When this comes around again, check it out. It is something you don't want to miss.

Finally had a chance to sit down with Russ Whitman which I was really looking forward to. Russ has been incredibly supportive of Beier Drums, and uses a 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 as his main. He also has used a 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 15, 5.5 x 14 & 6.5 x 13 on tour. For this tour, he was using his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 for a portion of the show, and a Cajon for the rest of it. He is an incredible player, unbelievably knowledgeable, and is an all-around great dude. I really enjoyed my discussion with him.

The Craig Morgan Tour in 2017 is shaping up to be a big one again, and am really looking forward to seeing this band when they roll around. Thank You for everything Russ.....See you soon....
