Edwin McCain Taking the stage for what's easily the 100th time in almost as many days, EdwinMcCain casually joins his band as they start off another set that's impossiblytight and laid back at the same time. By the time his vocals kick in, it's clear thatthis is no ordinary troubadour on the club circuit. This is Edwin McCain, thevoice that is romance incarnate, has launched a thousand marriages and stirredup Southern soul for over 20 years.For the guy who always dreamed of a life on the road, Edwin's massive pop hits"I'll Be" and "I Could Not Ask For More" were like pulling into glamorous,exciting towns along his never-ending tour. They were life changing and senthim off with incredible memories and nifty souvenirs but were always just a partof the journey, not the destination. "I've been lucky enough to experience apretty broad range of stardom, and the lack thereof, throughout my journey as amusician," he once said with a chuckle. "I've been on television shows and wonawards, but I've also lived in the back of a truck, and I've even worked theDrive-Thru at Krispy Kreme singing wedding songs."Surprising to him more than anyone else, those very songs have endured beyondall wildest expectations, turning into wedding anthems and misty-eyedsoundtracks to countless wedding proposals. Over a million Dr. Phil viewersvoted "I'll Be" as the best wedding song ever written, the New York Timesdubbed him the "great American romantic," and at any given moment on thisvery day a radio station in America is playing one of his songs. "They're kind ofemotional road maps," Edwin explains, "and each one, especially if you'reconnected to it in some real way, can change and grow and lead you in newdirections of thought." "But the highlight of what I do is playing for andconnecting with the people that come out to see me live. The fans - and I hate tocall them fans - the friends of music that survive the advertising campaign longenough to understand what music is truly about, and have incorporated mymusic into their lives to the point where it is are part of their memories andemotions - those are the ones I do it all for.""It's not about chart positions or record sales or anything like that," insists theman wiplayers and much more than the audience and something happens and you'resitting there and your hair stands up. That's it, man. I love it."
