"When I went to Japan, I had a lady come to me and she was crying. I gave her a scarf and a kiss on the cheek and she dropped like a sack of potatoes. I had never had that happen. People get goose bumps and say that they feel like they are watching Elvis. That is pretty cool. I didn't see that coming."
He explained that he never lets the fame get to him and does not incorporate his Elvis character into his personal life.
"With me, when I put on makeup or put my hair up, it is only at work. Some people don't know how to turn it off. There is a time to start getting into character and there is a time for being me. I get back into the Elvis mind set by watching videos, and when I walk offstage I am back to being myself. Some people think they have to talk like him, flirt like him and it gets cheesy," he explained.
Edwards said that, like Elvis, he has one main lady in his life, his wife Donna. He said that they met in Las Vegas in an elevator after one of his performances and they were married in Graceland.
"I enjoy the compliments, but much like Elvis, I am very into my wife. Fans are respectful toward me and my wife," he said "She gets a lot of compliments and is involved in my career."
He said also like Elvis, he lives a pretty "rock and roll" lifestyle.
"I am pretty much booked until 2014. I get sleep when I can, but it is basically go-go-go. Your body does fully adapt to it. You find that you can sleep better on planes than beds sometimes. However, I always eat right and to keep from gaining weight, I exercise.”
