JD started playing fiddle at the age of three, and he credits his supportive parents and grandparents for encouraging him to perform from a very early age. JD has shared the stage with the likes of Charlie Daniels, Marty Stuart, and Mel Tillis.
JD joined Southern Drawl Band in 2014, and the band has played countless shows all over the US and will soon be headlining shows in Mexico. The band has a lot of fun on stage playing their unique blend of country and southern-rock, and this experience keeps fans coming back for more. Most notably, Southern Drawl Band has opened up for Blackberry Smoke, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Charlie Daniels.
With the full support of Southern Drawl Band, JD is currently working on a solo album due out this fall. This full-length album, titled Living Free, will take you back to your country roots while showcasing JD's extraordinary talents as a singer, songwriter, and musician. When asked about working with JD, co-writer Mike Kuhl said, "After working in Nashville for so many years and getting to write with so many incredibly talented people, I can say without question that JD is easily among the best in the game. What is even more impressive than his talents is how humble he remains through it all. He pours his heart and soul into every song he writes, and if there is one thing I can guarantee you will find in a JD Edge song, it is truth. If you listen to the legends, honesty seems to be the main ingredient in real country music. JD Edge fans can embrace and expect to hear that honesty in every song he writes."
This album would not be possible without the support of fans around the country. Please consider pre-ordering the upcoming album or making a donation to help cover recording, production, replication, and promotion of this solo project. Also, please check out the music from JD's 2012 EP Southside. Thanks again for all the support!
