WC Edgar Bio
From touring Australia in 2008 to a standing ovation from over 10,000 fans in Craponne France in 2009 to a whirlwind 10 shows in 10 cities in 10 days tour of Spain from December 1-10 2011, Erection Records Nashville recording artist singer-songwriter WC Edgar is the 'real deal' when it comes to country music. WC's bio reads like a who's who in Country Music & has worked as a steel guitarist FOR everyone from Tim McGraw/Alan Jackson/Ty England/Leroy Van Dyke/Dale Watson/Marty Haggard/Jeff Carson/BB Watson/The Country Music USA Show at Nashville's once famed Opryland USA plus many more. As a new artist now out on his own he's just released his second self penned CD 'Old School Survivor' to rave reviews worldwide on May 2, 2011. The first self penned CD 'Alcohol Of Fame featured his longtime friend and country artist Daryle Singletary on a track with him.
Singles that did well from Alcohol Of Fame the first CD were Burn That Bridge that
went to #20 and Close Up The Honky Tonks that went all the way to #9 on the
New Music Weekly Main Country Charts in 2010.
From Nashville's Music Row Magazine May 9, 2008 W.C. Edgar/Alcohol Of Fame Writer; W.C. Edgar Producer; W.C. Edgar with Greg Cole Publisher; W.C. Edgar Music BMI Universal Vision Entertainment Nashville W.C. Edgar is here to remind us that in Country Music, there should always be room for something like "Alcohol Of Fame". As you might expect from the title tune, Edgar's CD is Hardcore honky-tonk. He's a veteran steel guitarist for artists ranging from Alan Jackson to Dale Watson, from Tim McGraw to Johnny Lee. Now he is at last the front man, and he sings with great conviction, plus he wrote every song solo. As long as there are artists like this still making records, I'm a happy camper.

WC Edgar is a good ol' boy with that rapidly recognized Texas-sized- talent. His Texas Rain is a special treat. This recording is "radio-friendly" ... all the way.

UNIVERSAL VISION ENTERTAINMENT/Nashville Nashville Recording Artist WC Edgar W. C. EDGAR BIO & ALBUM Profile: Alcohol of Fame... In a not so perfect world filled with a facade of pretty faced boy bands with absolutely no substance, and lame reality "Idol" shows filled with bad karaoke shower singers, stands a guy at six foot three who's paid his dues in Country Music. WC Edgar has ridden a lot of roads in both rickety vans and million-dollar tour buses since his start in country music playing steel guitar for the likes of Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Marty Haggard, Ty England, Jeff Carson, Dale Watson, Leroy Van Dyke, Johnny Lee as well as The Country Music USA Show at Nashville's once famed Opryland USA. But now, at last, it's his turn. He's the new Country Music Artist and has taken the time to make an album of his own that includes his buddy Daryle Singletary helping him out on the last line of a WC Edgar ballad titled "Mirrors Don't Lie". Remarkably, Edgar wrote every song on the album without the aid of a single co-writer. These aren't just good songs, they're classic ones. He's mastered the sounds and idioms of Country Music in it's rhinestone heyday. Alcohol of Fame is a beacon of traditional Country Music, one that sparkles with fiddles, steel guitars andes of drinking too much and loving too hard. It's one of the most exciting collections to come down the pike in years. Alcohol of Fame is more than an album, It's an event. Prepare to be astounded!
