The Edgar Loudermilk Band welcomed talented guitarist and Georgia native Clint Coker in 2019. Clint's clean and diverse music stylings fit well and are a welcome addition to the Edgar Loudermilk Band's catalog of songs. Clint handles everything from the straight-up, hard driving bluegrass to the jazzy swing styles that has become an Edgar Loudermilk Band trademark.
Zack Autry comes from a long line of music lovers and musicians, coming by it naturally. He grew up singing and playing music in church and at family gatherings. He started playing the mandolin at age 8 and the fiddle around 9-10 years old. He is a self taught musician and singer who, although not instructed necessarily, but was nudged in the right direction by his musical mentors; notably, his father Jeff Autry and grandfather Bobby. Jeff is one of the best acoustic flat pickers alive today and Bobby was a well-known upright bass and guitar player from North Georgia. Zack grew up on a strong foundation of gospel, bluegrass, and country music, and through his grandfather, a love and appreciation of the hundreds of fiddle tunes written and played around his home. Zack plays mandolin and fiddle, as well as guitar,
and has a smooth, strong voice capable of a wide range. Zack plays his Randy Wood model F-5 Mandolin, given to him by Randy personally in March 2016. You can read more about Zack's endorsement here: "ZACK AUTRY ENDORSED BY ACCLAIMED GEORGIAN MASTER LUTHIER RANDY WOOD"
In late 2017, banjo player Curtis "Bum" Bumgarner joined the band. Bluegrass fans will recall seeing Curtis playing banjo with Adkins & Loudermilk, as well as a stint with Blue Mafia. Curtis, a seasoned veteran in the music industry, can "drive the five" or can easily transcend into the swing tunes Loudermilk does so well. Curtis' diversity of technique is the perfect fit for this musically diverse band.
