Edwin McCain to Open Season for USCB Center for the Arts
Edwin McCain Acoustic Trio will open the University of SC Beaufort’s Center for the Arts 2012- 2013 Season on Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 pm.
Blending equal parts folk, soul and rock, platinum selling artist Edwin McCain just released a new studio album called “Mercy Bound.” He’s best known for his top ten hits “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More.” Over a million Dr. Phil viewers voted “I’ll Be” 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 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 who 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 a part of their memories and emotions – those are the ones I do it all for.”
