Trae Edwards starting singing at the age of 5 at a PTA meeting in Oxford, Alabama. As Trae tells it, his mama lifted him up on a table, handed him a fake mike, and a lifelong passion was born.
Within two years, Trae was performing onstage with the legendary gospel singer Sammy Hall. Trae sang in church and school — for anyone who would listen to his humble country and gospel renditions. After graduating from high school in Oxford, he was awarded a vocal scholarship to Jacksonville State University in Alabama.
Fast forward to his 20s and a long career in Nashville as a session singer after winning the Male Vocalist Competition in “Charlie Daniels Country Talent Round-Up.” Over the years, Trae has performed at Nashville’s legendary Ryman with Naomi and Wynonna Judd, and Alison Krauss … and alongside many artists as diverse as Trace Adkins and Michael English. Trae also appeared in several of the Gaithers’ Homecoming Series videos.
Trae Edwards’ latest 11-song album, “I Believed,” is garnering positive buzz on GotCountryOnline.com and by industry insiders, such as producers George Hairr and Michael Sykes, and songwriter Jeremy Dean. Trae’s music is available through iTunes, ReverbNation, and on pasionlife.com.
From ballads to love songs, to the get-down country boogie of “Killing Myself to Stay Alive,” Trae Edwards’ music touches the minds and hearts of his many fans, old and new.
