I heard an interview with this guy on WNCW the other day.
What a great songwriter.
He wrote a bunch of songs that Johnny Cash did….”The Reverend Mr. Black”…. “Jackson”….a whole bunch of other songs.
And….he had a great sense of humor, too.
The DJ, Martin Anderson, lives on my mail route…so it was fun to hear a familiar voice talking to Mr. Wheeler.
Billy Edd Wheeler lives up in Swannanoa, NC….so he’s a local, I guess.
Swannanoa isn’t too far from us.
He’s written an autobiography that’s coming out soon….“Hotter than a Pepper Sprout: A Hillbilly Poet’s Journey from Appalachia to Yale to Writing Hits for Elvis, Johnny Cash, & More”.
What a life in music!
