Cris: Producer Michael Knox said that you play in the studio with the same energy that you have in concerts. How do you do that? What is the key to bringing that energy into the studio?
Rich Redmond, drummer for Jason Aldean: I was just talking to my new friend, Rick. He is a DJ in Denver on one of the big stations there. And it turned out he is a drummer. He said, "I am a big believer in people putting their energy into their instrument." It's almost like you play your personality. There are some exceptions, but drummers are usually the loudest, highest energy, most obnoxious person in the band. And you want that person on the drums. You really do. So I really think the drums are a manifestation of my personality, my soul, my aura.
