By 2013, Edgar felt he was ready to go out on his own. He released another CD that November with Mountain Fever Records, My Big Chance Tomorrow, with 15 original songs by Edgar. Shortly after that, he teamed up with David Adkins for a duo project, Adkins & Loudermilk.
“I wrote six or seven songs on that project. We toured it and we were nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year in 2014.” Edgar went on to record the Roads Traveled CD, which featured twelve of his original songs.
Edgar went in his own direction in 2015, signing with Pinecastle Records, where he recorded Georgia Maple, a project that features eight of his original songs. Next Edgar returned to Rural Rhythm Records, where he worked for several years with IIIrd Tyme Out. “It felt like home from the word go.” He put out Lonesome Riverboat Blues, and the title track spent several months on the Sirius XM chart.
