I am searching for a source to buy an album by Billy Ed Wheeler- "Hot Dog Heart" "The Little Shack Out Back"- late 60's folk/bluegrass music. Anyone know where I could get one? Thanks for your help! Please email your reply.

Oh, yes, "Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Back", I still have that on a 45rpm. For you younguns that's the little record with the big hole in the middle. Lovely song, that...they don't write like that any more...It's in the DT if anyone is unfamiliar with it!

There's another good one too "The Interstate is Coming Through Our Outhouse". Don't remember who did it.

"The Interstate is Coming Through My Outhouse" was written by R.C. Blankenship and H.G. Johe. AT least one recording was by none other than Bill Edd Wheeler on his "Nashville Zodiac" album (United Artists UAS 6711). I guess a trilogy is completed when one adds in another song by Bill Edd Wheeler called "Ode to Granny and the Little Brown Shack Out Back".

Julie,

I tried Amazon.com and CDNow.com and nothing for Billy Edd Wheeler. I also search three used record sites (Rockin' World, Musicstrip, and Paula's House of Music) to no avail. Perhaps some other dedicated searcher can come up with something. Apparently, you have asked a difficult question.

I have KAPP Recording "I Ain"tThe Worryin' Kind", by Billy Edd Wheeler, Plus versions of "Coal Tatoo" and "Coming of the Road" on another LP. The one's you're looking for, I might have buried in my basements. Now you've got me curious as what has happened to him and here he is?

Billy Edd sent me a cassette of songs he and Chet Atkins wrote together. It was recorded by Sagittarius Records and the P.O. Box 7, Swannanoa, N.C. I don't know if it is available commercially. There are some real neat songs on it though. The title is "Songs I wrote with Chet."

I certainly appreciated his work. When building a cabin in the wilderness of Alaska my wife and son and I used to listen to his singing of "Love" and even in the wet snow life would become beautiful again

Part of the problem must be misspelling. His name is Billy Edd (2 Ds) Wheeler. He lives happily in Swannanoa, NC (near Asheville).

Here's a Billy Edd short bio from another website:

Born and raised in Boone County, West Virginia, Billy Edd Wheeler graduated from Warren Wilson Jr. College at Swannanoa, North Carolina, in 1953, and Berea College at Berea, Kentucky, in 1955. Wheeler also did graduate study at Yale's School of Drama under John Gassner, majoring in playwriting. He has lived in Swannanoa since 1963, except for a two-year stint managing United Artists Music Group in Nashville, 1968-70.

Billy Edd has received 13 awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and was recently nominated to the Hall of Fame by Nashville Songwriters Association International (inducted, Oct. 2001 - rr). His folk-flavored songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, Bobby Darin, The Kingston Trio, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Kenny Rogers, Elvis, and 90-some others here and abroad. The songs include Jackson, The Rev. Mr. Black, High Flying Bird, The Coming of the Roads, Ode to the Little Brown Shack, and Coward of the County that was made into a movie.

Wheeler is author of 21 plays and four outdoor dramas that include the long-running Hatfields & McCoys at Beckley, West Virginia, and Young Abe Lincoln at Lincoln City, Indiana. His new one, Johnny Appleseed, will premiere at Mansfield, Ohio, in 2002. He has co-authored several books of humor, including Laughter in Appalachia, now in its 13th printing. Currently self-employed, he says "I'm still writing songs, which is my first love, but I've discovered a new way to go broke: I'm writing novels!"

The recipient of Distinguished Alumnus awards from Warren Wilson College and Berea College, other awards include "Best Appalachian Poetry" from Morris Harvey College, and Billboard Magazine's "Pacesetter Award for Music and Drama."

Married to the former Mary Mitchell Bannerman, the Wheelers have two children, Lucy and Travis, and continue to live in Swannanoa.
