Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. His hit songs, authentic spirit, and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts. After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music, “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US as a solo artist, with his full band or his acoustic trio.
