The EOP Songwriter Series was the brainchild of Chuck McDowell (of ESOEBO) and Eddie Owen. The goal was to introduce some very good - and possibly previously unknown - songwriters to the world by bringing them all together on one stage for a songwriters' round of music and storytelling that was hosted by Chuck.
Though Chuck can no longer host the event himself, we have given the Songwriters' Series his name in honor of his passion for music, his skill for storytelling, and his love for other artists. The Chuck McDowell Songwriter Series carries the same original goal and is a songwriters' round made up of three singer-songwriters.
The Friday, August 30th Chuck McDowell Songwriter Series will be featuring:
Sonically Nashville. Soulfully Alabama. There's an exciting new voice making waves in musical storytelling. Alabama native, Wyatt Edmondson is a folk-rock singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee. With two strongly praised demo projects under his belt and a wide array of shows across the southeast, Wyatt hasn't looked back since moving to Nashville.
Wyatt's alluring vocals and elegant songwriting make for a powerfully intriguing troubadour full of talent, passion and unapologetic honesty. Captivating grooves like his first radio single "The Way You Move" and narrative love song "Lovers Lake" proves Wyatt's musical canvas is deeply layered. Whether in the studio or on stage, each performance sparks intense emotion and makes for a compelling experience that is heartfelt, memorable and purely Wyatt Edmondson.

Ecuadorian and Nicaraguan singer- songwriter, Sarah Zúniga's shows are like listening to a fun mix tape compiled of deep-felt and catchy folk-rock, and Latin tunes.
