From the days of riding around in smoke-filled overcrowded rickety vans to million-dollar tour buses, you could say he's done it all.
Moving to Nashville Tennessee with dreams of becoming an artist WC Edgar went to work playing pedal steel guitar for the likes of Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Opryland USA on the Country Music USA Show at Nashville's once famed music park, Ty England, BB Watson, Marty Haggard, Dale Watson, Leroy Van Dyke, Lucky Tubb, Johnny Lee, Jeff Carson, Whitey Morgan and many many more.
Other singer-songwriter accolades include five appearances on the world-famous 'Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree' live from the Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville Tennessee. The Midnight Jamboree has featured new and upcoming talent every Saturday night following the Grand Old Opry since 1948.
Midnight Jamboree appearances shared the stage with such notable classic country music icons as Charlie Louvin, Justin Tubb, Skeeter Davis, Johnny Russell, Alison Krauss & more...
It's often been said that every now and then a really special artist that has what it takes to 'shake things up' in the music industry seems to fall through the cracks in the everyday corporate BS, and backstabbing that goes on in Nashville and WC Edgar is one of those artists'. In 2003 WC started writing again and the rest is history. After 9 trips to France, a 2-week tour of Australia, a whirlwind 10 shows in 10 cities in 10 days in Spain to Canada, Sweden, and most all of the lower 48 US States WC Edgar is living the 'honky-tonk dream'.
With his trusty Martin HD-28 guitar, new management, label & new music under his belt in 2021 & influences the likes of songwriters Merle Haggard, Steve Earle, Alan Jackson, David Allan Coe & Jamey Johnson we'd say he's well on his way to being the world-class American Outlaw singer-songwriter he was always destined to be.
So be on the lookout for WC Edgar soon at a venue near you when our four-year national nightmare is over!
