Ed Snodderly is a musician and songwriter from Johnson City, Tennessee. He uses images from the old and odd Appalachian world and combines with his own musical backbone to create inspired, original and beautiful songs.

The 110th Tennessee General Assembly honored Johnson City singer/songwriter/actor Ed Snodderly for a distinguished career in the arts during a Senate session at 8:30AM CST on Thursday April 12th, 2018 at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville.

Lynda Weingartz, CEO - AirPlay Direct says, “Ed is the real-deal… he has the ‘it factor’! His many various talents allows him the opportunity to create inspired performances in music and on-stage as both an actor and an accomplished

live music performer. Ed’s song ‘Hobo’ was recently selected for and appears on APD’s "Global Radio Showcase" Volume 6 – "Just Folkin’ Around". His unique talents and beautiful soul put him in a class of entertainers that most artists only dream of.”

"AirPlay Direct has allowed me to present my catalog of music, not to mention my newest releases to a wide variety of radio in this country and around the world," states Ed Snodderly, Independent Artist / Songwriter. "I've been most pleased in reaching cool stations here in the South, as well as, other parts of these United States. It's exciting reading the charts and looking at the graphs to see where my music has been downloaded. Seeing the stations abroad that have picked up my songs; those important

stations that love the American tongue of lyrics and chord changes."

Snodderly further says, "My music is of the obscure; meaning I don't have to pander to any particular genre. I'm free to roam. I'm free to create as long as I keep to that rule of creating the best song I can. AirPlay Direct has made it possible for me to continue in this spirit and has helped me to find success. We think a lot alike and believe in the power of individual discovery and expression that plays straight to the heart of song distributors (disc jockeys)!"

Ed's songs have been recorded by artists including Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, John Cowan, Reel Time Travellers, Missy Raines and many others.

His originally penned "The Diamond Stream" is one of two featured in the Hall of Honor Rotunda in the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville---the other is the A.P. Carter standard "Will the Circle Be Unbroken."
