Chuck McDowell Tribute Show featuring Wyatt Edmondson and Russell Brown, of Magnolia Express
Live at Red Clay Music Foundry
Saturday, January 25th at 8 pm
A tribute to the late songwriter Chuck McDowell, featuring some of his favorite performers Wyatt Edmonson, Magnolia Express, and more.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama 25 years ago, Edmondson ultimately moved to Nashville to pursue his dual songwriter/performer dream, albeit in the midst of facing one particular obstacle along the way. Despite being diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa as a teenager, Edmondson decided not to let his degenerative eye condition slow him down in the least. “I remember so clearly being 15 and finding out I was losing my vision. But something in me was like, ‘This is your chance to use what’s been brewing and stirring up inside you to help prove that people can do anything they want to in spite of the cards they’re dealt.’ For me, that was music. It’s really been the thing that gets me up in the morning. It keeps me going, and I’m really thankful for that. I hope it can inspire others as well.”
