35. Ed Eason plays the biggest stages in the world but his favorite stage is at his Nashville home.


Close up head and shoulders view of boy with close-cropped blond hair with head turned sideways with face and eyes illuminated by natural light in a room of shadows. His hair is a side part with dramatic tuft on top. He wears a light-toned bomber-style nylon jacket with thin elastic collar over white crew-neck t-shirt. A string of small beads hangs around his neck descending his chest.

Above, Bennet Eason, 10, son of Gretchen Eason and Carrie Underwood guitarist Ed Eason, participates in a fashion shoot in downtown Nashville, June 2018.

Famous in their own right, Ed and Gretchen prefer to push others into the spotlight, including their three sons, Boone, Bennet, and Beck, all three of whom are a new generation of young artists.

Here Ed makes a rare impromptu appearance joining German friends in a cover band performing at Top Golf, September 2018.

Here Ed stands with his friend Miss Andre’ Prince-Jeffries, owner of Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, after introducing her to Carrie Underwood at the Grand Ole Opry, August 2019.
