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.”
