Profile Information

Recording Engineer / Live Sound Engineer
Company Name:
Gardner Audio Productions
About Me:
I was very interested in music growing up. I started recording as a hobby in the mid 70’s. Played trumpet in the college jazz band while running the sound from on stage. Started touring as sound engineer in 1977 with a band sponsored by Campus Life. In 1979, I started working with a touring sound company in Kentucky. Toured with Debby Boone and Pat Boone for three years. Ran sound for the large Amway Conventions in the early ‘80s. Started touring with Ronnie Milsap in 1982 and worked with him for eleven years. Worked as an assistant engineer on nine of his records. In 1993, I got a call from Steve Wariner offering me his production manager/FOH position. Since then I have engineered Steve’s last seven CDs. Since 1992, I have engineered CD projects for Ronnie Milsap, Phil Keaggy, Bill Anderson, Steve Wariner, Jerry Reed, Pam Gadd, Tanya Savory, Hometown News, Leland Martin, Rhonda Vincent, Rhema Marvanne and hundreds more custom CD projects and demos.
In 1997, I married drummer Nancy Given Prout. Nancy was in Porter Wagoner’s band for three years, before co-forming the all girl band Wild Rose. They had three CDs in the late 80's early 90's on Capitol Records. She enjoys being a full time mom, along with playing drums, engineering and producing custom projects and songwriting. We enjoy using our home studio, Sonar DAW, tubes, analog tape, volleyball, and being parents to our eleven year-old daughter, Erin.

Kenya Mission Trip 2012

Posted on March 28, 2012 at 8:29am 0 Comments

Hello Dear Friends,                                                                                                                    March 2012

 This is my second letter to many of you about my upcoming mission trip to Kenya.  My reason for this letter is to remind you to please keep us in your prayers.  In about three weeks we will be arriving there to lead worship for the missionaries from SIM Sudan at their annual Servant Leadership Conference.  I will be using my gifts…


Kenya Mission Trip

Posted on February 15, 2012 at 8:30am 0 Comments


Greetings!,                                                      February 2012                                                                                          

When I was growing up in the 60's and 70's the pace of life was moving a bit slower than now.  Local churches would send out a few missionaries to Africa and Central America and I would wonder, why?  Why, when there are so many needy, poor, uneducated, non-believers right here in our own country? …


Why no number 2?

It’s been a while since I’ve taken a trip on a tour bus. Today we left from the Cool Springs Kroger at 7:45 am bound for Louisville, KY. Just a one day trip up and back to play a festival.

So, I get on this ‘05 model Prevost bus. Very nice is an understatement. GPS, two satellite receivers with large LCD flat screen TVs. High speed internet service! (I’m not kidding!) Surround sound, DVD/Blue Ray players, X-Box 360 gaming systems. Each bunk has it’s own radio receiver with CD/DVD player… Continue

I am eager to serve as a Health Care Chaplain to introduce anyone in need of a health plan for Christians to consider the Samaritan Ministries Health Plan.  Samaritan Ministries is "a Biblical way for Christians to bear one another's health care needs without using health insurance".  We have effectively shared each other's needs since 1994 and currently share about $42m of real medical bills annually.  Our membership is growing rapidly as this is the real deal taking care of the need of over 15,000 households presently.  I serve as a chaplain to help you work through the process of trusting God and His Church in a way that affirms the mandate in Gal. 6:2.  You can find info about this health plan at or call me at 615-238-4035.  The cost is lower than you would expect since this is a non-profit plan that does not pay for the costs of non-Biblical lifestyles.  We do not cover the cost of abortions either.   I look forward to helping you get some relief and assurance of this faith-based health plan.  Thanks.

By God's Grace, Ron Lively

Hi Randy! Thanks for being my friend! I really appreciate it. I am new to the site and am having fun exploring. Your music sounds beautiful. Sounds like you have alot of musical accomplishments. Maybe you know my friends Adam and Rhonda Hampton who also tour with Ronnie Milsap. Adam has produced a CD for me. Great couple! God bless you! Have a beautiful day! :) Tammy

Hi Randy,

I'd like to record vocals to the collaboration with Josh and Abbey "Five Days of My Life". The studio is closer to my home. The song is about a trip home to Iowa. I purchased the multi-track so that we could go back sometime and remix it. The key was better for my voice than Josh. The tracks sounded awesome! I loved playing harmonica on this song. Do you know the hourly rate at Watershed? I can contact Mark B. about a date and price too.

Thanks Randy! Long time, no see! How are things in your world?

Hi Randy. Sorry for the delay getting back to you.
I no longer have the 1214. It went to shitty gear heaven and is now much happier not being responsible for recording sound.

How much do you get an hr for engineering? I need help.
