"Eddie Foster for years has been a fixture of the music community in the Hill Country.

On one evening in particular, during one of his many explorations, Eddie began to hear low rumblings and echoing chimes reverberating from a particular group of the numerous hills that tower over the small town. Like any curious boy would do, Eddie made his way over to the area from which the sounds were coming from. As he walked closer, the sounds started to get clearer, and before long Eddie would discover that he was actually listening to Willie Nelson and Ray Price resonating from the Historic John T. Floore's Country Store. It would be experiences like these that would set in motion Eddie's passion for creating and playing music. As a boy, Eddie enveloped himself in songwriting and instrument mastery; spending countless hours devoted to both.
