ZAC EDINGTON is a Midwestern born singer/songwriter from the southern part of Illinois currently residing in Nashville, TN. He was raised listening to the sounds of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, and countless other musical heroes. This led to a deep love of all things music. Zac joined his first band in high school and started playing shows shortly after that. The thrill of performing cover material was just not enough, so he took up an interest in writing his own. This decision, in turn, supplied the means for his first studio EP, “From The Ashes”. He has previously had the great experience of opening a show for country music star Joe Diffie. Zac is now a proud member of the Winter Records label out of Nashville and plays shows all over the country.
