Earl Edwards (songwriter)

Earl Edwards was an American songwriter. Along with Bernice Williams and Gene Chandler (né Eugene Dixon), he co-wrote the 1962 hit "Duke of Earl". It was originally intended for his group, The Dukays, but Vee-Jay Records, who later bought the song, gave the vocal credit to Chandler.[1]
