Billy Edd Wheeler

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!
