Edgar Loudermilk

Rural Rhythm Records recording artist Edgar Loudermilk’s signature voice, bass skills, and songwriting are a family tradition for this Louvin Brothers’ descendant. Loudermilk’s distinctive and powerful vocals cut to the heart of a song, while also winning over audiences with his friendly, down-home style. He's earned several industry awards over the course of a long career performing with Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Rhonda Vincent, and Marty Raybon, and in 2015, Loudermilk stepped out forming his own band with the highly-acclaimed musicians Jeff Autry (guitar), Zack Autry (mandolin), Curtis Bumgarner (banjo), and Dylan Armour (resonator guitar). The Edgar Loudermilk Band’s title track on their 2019 album Lonesome Riverboat Blues spent 12 weeks in the Top 20 of the Bluegrass Today Airplay Charts. In addition, “Lonesome Riverboat Blues” (written by Loudermilk, Jeff Autry, & Zack Autry) reached #1 status on the Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction “Most Played” status for July 2019. The Edgar Loudermilk Band tours coast-to-coast and throughout Canada, as well as a regulars on the popular bluegrass cruises.
