Poets and Prophets: Salute to Legendary Songwriter

Billy Edd Wheeler Saturday, October 18 • 1:30 p.m. • Ford Theater


Yale-educated, Billy Edd Wheeler was elected in 2000 to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. His many masterful compositions include “Coward of the County” (Kenny Rogers); “Jackson” (Johnny Cash and June Carter); “It’s Midnight” (Elvis Presley); and “Gimme Back My Blues” (Jerry Reed). Wheeler scored one major hit of his own with the novelty number “Ode to the Little Brown Shack out Back” (#3, 1964–65). Living now in North Carolina, he will make a rare Nashville appearance to discuss his career and perform briefly.
