Shady Green from Edgar Loudermilk

646de5608851df1e92ef0f4b_618x411Mountain Fever has a new single today from an upcoming album by IIIrd Tyme Out bassist/vocalist Edgar Loudermilk.

Edgar will remain a big part of IIIrd Tyme Out’s success, and records side projects to highlight his lead singing and songwriting prowess. Each of the tracks on this new CD are his, including this first single, Shady Green.

Here’s a sample of the song, along with Loudermilk’s comments about the single and the album.

“We were in some really big mountains and I thought that the pioneers and early settlers had a chore just to make it through those mountains with mules, wagons, and their families. That thought led me to writing the song Shady Green.

We are excited with the release of this new album in which we wrote all 15 tracks with only one co-write. I’m excited to bring out more of my music in hopes of it being received well. We have many featured guests on the album such as: Wayne Benson, Jeff Autry, John Cowan, Junior Sisk, Shawn Lane, Buddy Melton, Scott Vestal, and many more.”

 

Radio programmers can find the single now at Airplay Direct. We can expect to see this as yet untitled album in July.

    That’s some trippy tape-echo effect on the intro! Nice to hear bluegrass guys experiment with studio technology a bit…be curious to see if anyone balks.

      Wait till you hear the wah-pedal on the bass and it will help explain the reasoning behind the kettle drums on his new version of “Don’t it make my brown eyes blue”. Edgar is just radical man….

        You’re probably joking, but I hope you’re not! Bluegrass was designed by Mr. Monroe as an experimental, progressive music that grows and changes with new influences…good for Edgar for trying some new things…
