Of late, Edgar had been touring and recording with Dave Adkins in the Adkins & Loudermilk band, but both partners are now working on solo projects, so that collaboration seems to be at an end. Prior to working with Dave, Loudermilk played bass with IIIrd Tyme Out for seven years. He has also worked with Rhonda Vinent and Marty Raybon.
Jeff Autry, who has been guitarist with Adkins & Loudermilk, will continue with Edgar both on the new project and at live shows.
Edgar says that there will be new music soon from this upcoming record.
“We are so excited to be a part of the team here at Pinecastle! This album has been a great experience, and landing a home with Pinecastle is a great fit. The new album is a collection of original tunes with a few old classics. We will be supporting this album with dates on the books for The Edgar Loudermilk Band featuring Jeff Autry, and will also be available at Adkins & Loudermilk shows. Pinecastle is also bringing Jeff Autry’s album, Foothills, back in print to be available at shows. Our upcoming single fits the traditional bluegrass format that we love so much. Thanks so much to Pinecastle Records, we are looking forward to be part of a great team here!”
