This past week saw the Audio Engineering Society's Lifetime Achievement Awards in Nashville. Congratulations go out to all of the honorees but a special congrats to Brent Maher. Songwriter, Producer, and Engineer. I met Brent very early on when I moved to Nashville in the early 70's. He was engineering at Creative Workshop in Berry Hill area. I saw him several times during my gig at Masterfonics up until '93. Brent has always been one of those kind, easy going, smooth personalities that make you feel like your his buddy. Brent's credentials go on for days....Ike and Tina Turner, Roy Orbison, Duke Ellington, Elvis, and many more. Brent is the recipient of six (6) Grammy awards. Probably most famously known for producing The Judds, country duo. It was a stellar moment, in the program, when Naomi Judd showed up to present Brent with his Lifetime Achievement Award. Congratulations to Brent Maher.
