"Highly Recommended"


From Honky Tonkin Music.com
2008 Release. Edgar is probably one of the best kept secrets as far country vocals and musical abilities are concerned and has played
steel guitar for a host of country notables including,ALAN JACKSON, TIM McGRAW, DALE WATSON, LEROY VAN DYKE to name
just a few. This is a real honkytonker with lots of fiddles, steel guitar, accoustic guitar, piano, bass & drums. The downbeat has lots of
bottom on the bass that'll set your toes to tappin'. Edgar's vocals are in the tradition of RANDY TRAVIS with shades of PAYCHECK & HAGGARD on the ballads and a touch of CHARLIE DANIELS on the uptempos. All songs are EDGAR originals and better than
most of 'em. 14 tracks with intro by DARYLE SINLETARY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

"Great Album"

Yesterday & Today Records (Australia)
W.C. Edgar – “Alcohol of Fame” Every now and again an independent cd comes along which is so good you wonder how the
artist isn’t a star of the highest proportion. Vocally W C has a voice which reminds of Merle Haggard’s son, Marty and that is
very good. He is also a steel guitarist who toured with the likes of Alan Jackson, surprisingly the aforementioned Marty Haggard….
could this be a ruse and it is in fact Marty doing the vocals????? Well that is my conspiracy theory of the month, even if I would be
wrong. He is an exceptional writer and has written all 12 songs without a collaborator. “You Never Had Forever In Mind” is a great
a-grade lyric about the one sided end of a relationship. “Alcohol of Fame”, is different to the song of a few years ago but every bit as good. “Mirrors Don’t Lie” (not the Gene Watson song) features the equally fine voiced Darryl Singletary. Just to prove he could write
3 songs with the same title as a well known song he does an excellent “Close Up the Honky Tonks”, a full bore honky tonk number.
Several tracks have a rodeo theme and “Vegas” couples the rodeo theme with the break up of a relationship. “Barrels and Bottles” is
an upbeat number about a guy who goes to watch his girl in the barrel races whilst he himself prefers the bottles. “Texas Rain” is
another breakup song with a great conversational style and a few nice organ runs. You could never accuse W C of having great romantic
success. One or two tracks have a Charlie Daniels style “if it ain’t American..it ain’t” style lyric but the vocals are so good you will
overlook this. Knock me down with a feather….WC is touring Australia and will be playing Sydney in June and Melbourne end of May.
Great album.

"Editors Pick"

From Download.coms Editors Pick File...

W.C. Edgar, "Mirrors Don't Lie" The title immediately makes me think of Lefty Frizzell's
"I Never Go Around Mirrors," one of the saddest self-deprecating country songs of the last half-century.
The smooth-voiced Edgar's song has a hefty dose of that classic Lefty-era golden glory about it - a sound
so barroom-sad you'll want to start drinking immediately, even first thing in the morning.

"Radio Friendly"

WC Edgar is a good ol' boy with that rapidly recognized Texas-sized- talent. His Texas Rain is a special treat.
This recording is "radio-friendly" ... all the way.

"WC Edgar Bio & Album Profile"

W.C. EDGAR BIO & ALBUM Profile:

Alcohol of Fame...
In a not so perfect world filled with a facade of pretty faced boy bands with absolutely
no substance, and lame reality
"Idol" shows filled with bad karaoke shower singers, stands a guy at six foot three who's paid his dues in Country Music.


WC Edgar has ridden a lot of roads in both rickety vans and million-dollar tour buses since his start in country music
playing steel guitar for the likes of Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Marty Haggard, Ty England, Jeff Carson, Dale Watson,
Leroy Van Dyke, Johnny Lee as well as The Country Music USA Show at Nashville's once famed Opryland USA.

But now, at last, it's his turn. He's the new Country Music Artist and has taken the time to make an album of his own
that includes his buddy Daryle Singletary helping him out on the last line of a WC Edgar ballad titled
"Mirrors Don't Lie". Remarkably, Edgar wrote every song on the album without the aid of a single co-writer.
These aren't just good songs, they're classic ones. He's mastered the sounds and idioms of Country Music
in it's rhinestone heyday.

Alcohol of Fame is a beacon of traditional Country Music, one that sparkles with fiddles, steel guitars and tales
of drinking too much and loving too hard. It's one of the most exciting collections to come down the pike in years.

Alcohol of Fame is more than an album, It's an event. Prepare to be astounded!
