In 1950 or '51, Edd received a message to call Bill Monroe. Monroe, remembering Edd's singing and playing skills, had called to offer him a job in his band. It was a terrible dilemma for the group, but after some discussion they decided that Edd should not pass up this opportunity. This was to be the first of three stints for Edd under Monroe's tutelage.
