Edwin McCain

Taking the stage for what's easily the 100th time in almost as many days, Edwin
McCain casually joins his band as they start off another set that's impossibly
tight and laid back at the same time. By the time his vocals kick in, it's clear that
this is no ordinary troubadour on the club circuit. This is Edwin McCain, the
voice that is romance incarnate, has launched a thousand marriages and stirred
up 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 sent
him off with incredible memories and nifty souvenirs but were always just a part
of the journey, not the destination. "I've been lucky enough to experience a
pretty broad range of stardom, and the lack thereof, throughout my journey as a
musician," he once said with a chuckle. "I've been on television shows and won
awards, but I've also lived in the back of a truck, and I've even worked the
Drive-Thru at Krispy Kreme singing wedding songs."
Surprising to him more than anyone else, those very songs have endured beyond
all wildest expectations, turning into wedding anthems and misty-eyed
soundtracks to countless wedding proposals. Over a million Dr. Phil viewers
voted "I'll Be" as the best wedding song ever written, the New York Times
dubbed him the "great American romantic," and at any given moment on this
very day a radio station in America is playing one of his songs. "They're kind of
emotional road maps," Edwin explains, "and each one, especially if you're
connected to it in some real way, can change and grow and lead you in new
directions of thought." "But the highlight of what I do is playing for and
connecting with the people that come out to see me live. The fans - and I hate to
call them fans - the friends of music that survive the advertising campaign long
enough to understand what music is truly about, and have incorporated my
music into their lives to the point where it is are part of their memories and
emotions - those are the ones I do it all for."
"It's not about chart positions or record sales or anything like that," insists the
man wi
players and much more than the audience and something happens and you're
sitting there and your hair stands up. That's it, man. I love it."
