The popular Peabody Rooftop Party program moves into the hotel’s Grand Ballroom on Thursday, Dec. 16, with pop singer-songwriter Edwin McCain headlining the “Holiday Concert Party” at 7 p.m.
Doors open at 5 p.m. with a $5 cover charge for ages 21 and up. Special guests Forrest and Darren take the stage at 6 p.m.
McCain, the Greenville, S.C., native who was introduced to the mainstream rock world by Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish, hit the charts with “I’ll Be” in 1997 and spent his early recording years on the Lava/Atlantic label. He’s drifted from regular pop to an acoustic-based sound and back, and has a sixth album out on a different label, “Scream and Whisper,” which he recorded after reaching a personal crossroads and finding a new passion about music again, his website says. McCain has also hosted a music show on Sirius satellite radio in recent years.
