Hannah Blaylock Leaves Edens Edge

edens-edge-album

Edens Edge took to their website and twitter this morning to announce that one of their founding members, Hannah Blaylock, has sadly left the trio. Cherrill Green and Dean Berner posted this message for their fans this morning on their site:

Edens Edge said farewell to a founding member of the group, who left upon her own accord and with much disappointment. They played their final show on February 22, 2013 at The Grand Ole Opry. The Arkansas natives made their sentimental Opry debut on March 5th, 2011. Dean found the location of their last show to be beautifully ironic as, “The Opry stage is a place that artists begin living the first pages of their journey and many times it is the last place they play before their earthly journey ends and tonight we couldn’t have asked for a better place to open this new chapter for Edens Edge than on such a gracious stage.”

Dean & Cherrill would like to personally thank Scott Borchetta for his belief and support in Edens Edge. They’re forever grateful for the time spent inside the Big Machine family.

Personal message from Dean: “We’re literally living on the “edge” right now, as we regroup, write, and the next chapter of our band is revealed. It’s a crazy but exciting time, and we hope everyone will join us on the journey.”

Personal message from Cherrill: “One of my favorite parts of the past few years, in addition to amazing tours and performing on the Opry stage, was getting to make and meet fans. Feeling supported and loved as you are following your dreams is one of the most amazing gifts. I can’t thank the fans enough, and we can’t wait to get back out there and see them all again.”

Cherrill and Dean have announced that they are still writing and recording new music, although it looks as though they’re no longer part of the Big Machine family. “The new freedom we have in the writing process has injected creativity and life into every lyric. It has allowed us to create songs that are true to the love for traditional sounds that brought us together but we’re also taking some unconventional risks with regard to collaborations, new faces and content. We’re pushing our own boundaries. I can’t wait for our wonderfully loyal fans to hear what we’ve been working away on,” said Cherrill, excitedly.

Edens Edge was formed back in 2004 and was signed in 2010 by Scott Borchetta to Big Machine Records. Currently, Edens Edge is listed as an Archived Artist on the Big Machine website.

Deans priority is to get Edens Edge back on the road to perform for fans. “We will never be the same as we were before, but we believe that the changes will lead to a more exciting and electrically engaging stage show.”

So, to be a part of it all now is exciting for us.  It will be a thrill for us to hear every time we walk in one of the stores across the country – Dean Berner.

Our connection with Cracker Barrel is as personal as it is professional…There’s nothing like seeing one of their billboards when you’re hungry and knowing that it’s only a few miles to the exit and some good country cooking. – Cherrill Green

We love to connect with people through music. Having our debut album in Cracker Barrel gives us an even greater opportunity to connect with our fans in one of our favorite restaurants in the country.  – Hannah Blaylock.

Music is an important part of the guest experience at Cracker Barrel…Introducing guests to a talented new trio like Edens Edge is a wonderful way to expand our exclusive music program and its appeal to a variety of tastes. – Julie Craig, Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager.

untitled

Country newcomers Eden’s Edge will be releasing an exclusive deluxe edition of their self-titled debut album with some help from Cracker Barrel. The Big Machine Record group will release both the standard and deluxe editions of their CD on June 12th, marking the first time that Cracker Barrel has ever released their deluxe version on the same day as the album’s wide release.

The band, originally from Arkansas,consists of lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock, and guitarists/backup-singers/multi-instrumentalists, Dean Berner and Cherrill Green, wrote half of the songs on the album, as well as the 3 bonus tracks on the Cracker Barrel release. “Growing up in small towns, we’re huge fans of home cooking and a family-style environment. Now that we’re on the road most of the year, we often find ourselves seated at Cracker Barrels across the country. It’s so exciting that one of our favorite places has asked us to be a part of their exclusive music program and give our mutual fans an extra helping of our favorite songs,” said Green.

“Our working with Cracker Barrel is a perfect fit. We started pickin’ and singing music with friends and family on front porches in our home state of Arkansas. And they’re a lot like the front porches at Cracker Barrel stores that we see across the country. Every time we stop at a Cracker Barrel it feels like home to us!” said Blaylock.

In addition to the exclusive album, all Cracker Barrel stores will distribute digital download with a free download of Edens Edge’s new single, “Too Good to Be True.” “The free digital download will give Cracker Barrel guests a great taste of the sound they’ll find on the upcoming Edens Edge – Deluxe Edition CD,” said Julie Craig, Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager. “It’s a great way to enjoy a sample of what’s to come when their CD debuts in a few weeks. We hope our guests will like what they hear and then stop by to pick up the CD.”
