September 06, 2023


This week’s guest is Rich Redmond. Rich has been the touring and recording drummer with multi platinum country rocker Jason Aldean for nearly two decades. He has recorded 31 #1 radio hits and plays to millions of fans per year in iconic venues across the globe. Rich has also worked with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Ludacris, Bryan Adams, Bob Seger, Chris Cornell, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan and many more. Rich is also a busy educator, speaker, author and actor. But before that, I hope you enjoy the 5 (actually six) records that helped shape Rich Redmond into the player he is today. Cheers !
