“Eddie Bush” features Hard to Stop a Train, Eddie’s first Billboard charting single. Hard to Stop a Train and its accompanying video were featured frequently on GAC (Great American Country) and CMT (Country Music Television).*CD available at concerts.
In a way, the chorus of Eddie Bush’s new single, “It’s Hard To Stop A Train,” describes the dynamic career momentum of this talented singer, songwriter and guitarist. Playing guitar practically since he could walk, Eddie was also inspired by a passionate love of artists like Glen Campbell, Elvis, The Beatles and The Osmond Brothers to develop his natural singing talent. He’d formed his first band before he hit Junior High and was playing club dates as lead guitarist and singer with his own original rock bands by age sixteen. Eddie has continued to build a strong following as an in-demand live performer known for his eclectic set lists, charismatic stage presence and virtuoso guitar licks. “Once I decided that music would be my career,” Eddie recalls, “I was completely dedicated to becoming a great guitar player.”
Oddly enough, it was the guidance of Eddie’s guitar-slinging country idols that led him to focus on his vocal abilities and gift for compelling song craft, a move that steered him away from straight up rock and directly into the country realm. Eddie’s ambitious, self-titled debut album presents a tight collection of thirteen songs that fit comfortably into the country pocket while drawing from classic rock and pop sensibilities that have inspired him since childhood. “When folks first hear a song like “Call Me Lucky,” it’s easy to assume the record will sound like Keith Urban,” Eddie offers, “but when you actually listen to the variety of songs, it goes beyond that. For years, fans told me I had so much more to offer than just going down the road of being a gunslinger. I started taking these comments seriously, really listening to what’s going on in country and experimenting with sounds. There’s so much room to move within country music right now that I feel my trip into the country world basically fell into place at the right time.”
The rousing two-step, “We Don’t Kiss Like That Anymore”and the album closer, “Two Nights In a Row” show Eddie’s lyrical playfulness and keen sense of humor. “Songs are like time capsules that can take you right back to the place you were when you wrote them. Ultimately, if I’ve been very moved by something I’ve written about, then hopefully you’ll be moved by it as well when listening to my songs.”
