MOUNT VERNON -- The Knox Partnership for Arts and Culture (KPAC) has announce that Edwin McCain will be coming to The Woodward Opera House on July 13, 2019 at 8 p.m.

Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour.

His hit songs, authentic spirit and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts.

After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music and experiencing the success that comes with a television show on Animal Planet (Flipping Ships), McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the U.S. as a solo artist, with his full band or his acoustic trio.

Recently, he’s added orchestras to his repertoire, performing with symphonies in select markets where he brings his powerful songs to majestic new heights.

“The 15-year-old me would have crawled through a river of fire to be the 48-year-old singer/songwriter that I am today, and I remember that. I am incredibly grateful to be able to do this,” McCain said.

Those enduring love songs (and wedding must-haves) “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” aren’t just for the romantic at heart; “American Idol” and “The Voice” contestants turn to Edwin’s ballads every single year to help them win over judges and fans alike (just ask last season’s American Idol winner, Nick Fradiani). Even Justin Bieber has been known to belt out “I’ll Be” during his own concerts.

The 2018 season marked the 20th year of the success of “I’ll Be,” which topped the Billboard charts in 1998 and has proven to be a timeless classic over the past two decades.

Knox Partnership for Arts and Culture (KPAC) is the managing tenant for The Woodward Opera House theater and conference space and is located at 107 South Main Street, Suite 200, Mount Vernon, Ohio. To purchase tickets, visit www.thewoodward.org or call 740-263-6737 ext 2.
