The Wedding Biz 147: REVISIT: EDWIN MCCAIN – His Hit Wedding Songs
REVISIT: Due to popularity, we replay Andy’s inspiring conversation with the artist behind three enormously popular wedding songs—Edwin McCain. Edwin first gained industry attention with his indie album Solitude. He toured extensively with Hootie and the Blowfish, then signed with the same label (Atlantic Records) to release his first major-label album Honor Among Thieves. His second album Misguided Roses, spawned his first major hit single “I’ll Be”—it was featured on the TV show Higher Ground and the movie A Cinderella Story, then absolutely exploded when featured on Dawson’s Creek. His next big hit was his recording and performance of Diane Warren’s song, “I Could Not Ask For More,” which first appeared on the soundtrack of the Kevin Costner/Robin Wright movie Message In A Bottle. Edwin is refreshingly open and vulnerable with Andy and reveals fascinating stories behind both his struggles and triumphs. And, of his own volition, brings up why he still loves weddings and how grateful he feels for the opportunities he’s had in his career.
