On the trail on the highly successful A&L album, Edgar has struck out on his own with a solo project that he is very excited about. He is working with a new band called Edgar Loudermilk Band, featuring Jeff Autry. Although the band name may be new, all of the members have played together for quite some time and have super chemistry and stage dynamics. Edgar's former A&L bandmates, Jeff Autry (featured guitar player), Glen Crain (dobro) and Zack Autry (mandolin), complete his current band. They have recorded Edgar's album, titled "Georgia Maple" along with banjo picker, Chris Wade and have been booked solid all over the United States and Canada.
