    Edens Edge's Hannah Blaylock Ties the Knot at Intimate Ceremony in Arkansas

    October 8, 2012 0 Comments

    Rising stars Edens Edge got a little bigger last weekend (9/30) as lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock married beau Justin Wakefield during a quiet ceremony at Pratt Place Barn and Inn in the band’s homestate of Arkansas.

    The couple exchanged handwritten vows beneath a gorgeous White Oak tree that was decorated with fisherman's rope and glass floats from Alaska, where Hannah spent much of her childhood. Longtime friend Steve Smith, who coincidentally helped connect the members of Edens Edge and wrote a song (“Christ Alone”) for their album, officiated the intimate ceremony. The petite bride walked down the aisle to “Falling Over You,” a special song her brother Wes wrote about his wife. Later, Hannah then shared some of her own musical talents, leading wedding guests in a traditional hymn, "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus," from her grandmother's church.

    Orchestrated by wedding planner Shannon Langston, the magical evening coupled a perfect mix of southern countryside charm and elegance. Inspired by Nature florist Becky Clement accented the décor with burlap and baby's breath.

    After the announcement of “Mr. and Mrs.,” guests attended the reception at nearby rustic barn, which further displayed how family and friends are such a priority to the couple. The space was intermingled with photos of the groom and bride throughout their courtship wedding day images of their parents and grandparents. From a display of Hannah’s old barrel racing saddle and serving Arkansas-made wine to having her father's band, Summerfield Reunion, perform, every detail had a special meaning. Vintage chandeliers hung above a dance floor lined with hay bails, covered with heirloom quilts, and friends contributed personal centerpieces for the dinner tables as well as homemade apple pie, cobbler and chocolate chip cookies, compliments of bandmate Dean Berner's mom.

    The “new duo” will share some special alone time together on their honeymoon before Hannah reunites with her bandmates for the Rascal Flatts’ CHANGED TOUR.

    BMLG and ABC Studios Announce Exclusive Music Partnership for New ABC Series "Nashville"

    October 3, 2012 0 Comments

    ABC Studios and Big Machine Records, the leading independent Nashville-based record label home to superstars such as Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts, announced today an exclusive partnership to release and market music from the critically-acclaimed upcoming ABC series "Nashville." Stars Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio are among the cast slated to sing original content created for the series by established and breakout songwriters. Grammy® Award-winning producer T Bone Burnett serves as the executive music producer. Dubbed one of fall's most anticipated new TV dramas, "Nashville," premiering Wednesday, October 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network, was shot entirely in Music City, and pulls back the curtain to reveal the inner workings of the music industry.

    Under this new partnership, Big Machine Records will release original music from "Nashville" each week on both iTunes and ABC's Music Lounge. Multiple songs from the show's first episode will become available on iTunes beginning October 9, including "If I Didn't Know Better" -- a song written by John Paul White and Arum Rae and sung by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio.

    "This is a dynamic and innovative partnership," said Peter DiCecco, senior vice president, ABC Music Business Affairs. "Unlike any other show, the music originates with the story. By doing this, television's next great drama will have a soundtrack to match."

    "Nashville is a project that is very close to our hearts, and we are elated to have found a partner with the same passion and vision for the accuracy we are trying to achieve in the show," said Dawn Soler, senior vice president, ABC TV Music. "Scott Borchetta and the Big Machine Label Group came to the table with a great sense of enthusiasm and commitment to creativity that will uniquely maximize the music experience".

    "We are very selective of where and how we place our music into visual media," said Scott Borchetta, president and CEO of the Big Machine Label Group. "Music has to feel organic, appropriate and authentic when it is paired with on-camera visuals. When I saw the pilot for 'Nashville,' I knew instantly we needed to be part of it. Not only does our partnership make sense given how closely the show reflects the nature of the music business, but the show's talent has created some incredible music. We look forward to working with all of the amazing actors and actresses on the show."

    Music by Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) artists will also serve as the soundtrack for the series. The premiere episode of "Nashville" opens to the Eli Young Band's No. 1 hit song, "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," a dynamic vocal group and song that are both nominated for CMA Awards (airing Thursday, November 1 from 8:00-11:00 p.m. ET on ABC). Other BMLG artists featured in the first episode include Greg Bates' current Country radio hit, "Did It for the Girl," as well as Justin Moore's No. 1 smash hit, "Small Town USA."

    The Big Machine Label Group is composed of Big Machine Records, The Valory Co. and Republic Nashville (a joint partnership with Universal Records). "Nashville" is a co-production between ABC Studios and Lionsgate Television.

    June 1, 2012 0 Comments

    The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® exclusive music program is set to release a deluxe edition of hot newcomers Edens Edge’s debut album. The release of Edens Edge – Deluxe Edition coincides with Big Machine Records’ self-titled, standard edition – both will be available beginning June 12. The Arkansas-bred band is comprised of lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock; harmony vocals, guitar and dobro player Dean Berner; and harmony singer, mandolin, banjo and guitar player Cherrill Green. Collectively, they penned half of the songs on the project as well as three exclusive tracks for the deluxe version, which will be available at all Cracker Barrel locations and at crackerbarrel.com. This marks the first time the brand has ever released the deluxe version on the same day as the artists’ nationwide 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.

    Beginning June 2 – and in conjunction with the launch – all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations will distribute digital download cards, while supplies last. Each card is redeemable for one free download of Edens Edge’s sassy new single, “Too Good to Be True.” The song is a follow-up to their Top 20 hit, “Amen,” and exhibits the duality of Edens Edge’s musical influences and sound.

    “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.”

    “We are so thrilled fans will be able to get our new single ‘Too Good To Be True,’ on a free download card in stores before the album hits the shelves. And for those who aren’t as familiar with us, the song is a great sample of the ‘Edge’ side of Edens Edge. Fans can definitely expect to see a lot of versatility with that country roots sound to connect them all on the Edens Edge – Deluxe Edition CD,” said Berner.

    Edens Edge Unveil Cover for Self-Titled Debut Album, Slated for June 12 Release

    April 4, 2012 0 Comments

    Hot newcomers, Edens Edge, will release their Big Machine Records self-titled, debut album on June 12. Comprised of Hannah Blaylock (lead vocalist), Dean Berner(harmony vocals, guitar, dobro) and Cherrill Green (harmony vocals, mandolin, banjo and guitar),Edens Edge possess a unique musical blend deeply rooted in Country music, acoustic instrumentation and pure vocal harmonies. The trio has been in the studio perfecting their rootsy signature style, which is evident on their Top 20 debut single, “Amen,” as well as the sassy follow-up, “Too Good To Be True.” Award-winning producers Mark Bright and Dann Huff have each produced tracks for the project.

    “For years we played music in our hometowns so it’s been thrilling to do what we love on a broader scale, traveling across the country. And now, to release our first album and share our music with so many new fans and our friends at radio is just ‘too good to be true!’” exclaimed Blaylock.

    “Since releasing our digital EP last year, we’ve been looking forward to this next step and it’s finally here! We couldn’t have predicted the success we’d have with our first single, ‘Amen,’ and hope that our fans fall in love with the new songs, just as we did writing and recording them,” continued Green.

    If labelmates Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts’ accomplishments after signing with the label has been any indication, the group is poised to follow that success. This summer, Edens Edge will open for Flatts’ CHANGED TOUR, which begins in Hartford, CT on June 15. While last year, they were chosen to open three major Country tours – Brad Paisley's H2O II: Wetter and Wilder World Tour, Reba’s All the Women I Am Tour, and Lady Antebellum’s Own The Night Tour.

    “Edens Edge has been together for several years, but we know we’re still newbies, so it’s really humbling to have been invited on some amazing tours! We can’t thank Flatts, Reba, Brad or Lady A enough for allowing us to open up their shows and play for their fans. Let summer begin!” said Berner.

    The Arkansas-bred trio grew up about an hour from each other but wasn’t introduced by mutual friends until early adulthood. They began performing together and entered the 2006 NSAI Song Contest, where iconic songwriter Kye Fleming discovered them and encouraged a move to Nashville to pursue their musical careers. It was during their 2009 performance at Fleming’s induction ceremony into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame where Big Machine Label Group President & CEO Scott Borchetta took notice and quickly signed Edens Edge. Since, they have been profiled as one of Billboard’s “Artists to Watch” and were selected as a CMT LISTEN UP! Artist.

    General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s star-studded roster of Country music artists are teaming up with Feeding America to Outnumber Hunger in a national initiative that helps fight hunger in local communities. Outnumber Hunger will help Feeding America secure up to 15.6 million meals for local food banks to assist the one in six Americans who struggles with hunger.

    According to the USDA, an estimated 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, making the issue a growing reality in every community. By simply entering codes at OutnumberHunger.com, Americans can make a difference in their local communities at a time when it matters most.

    “Hunger is a year-round issue but it can be especially critical in the spring, so Feeding America food banks need help now,” said Vicki B. Escarra, President and CEO, Feeding America. “The combined reach that General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s artists bring to the hunger crisis will help provide critical resources at this key time.”

    This powerful group of partners is using its collective voice to rally Americans for the cause. Codes will appear on millions of specially-marked packages of General Mills products to give people the chance to help Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of their local food banks.

    “As a leading food company, no cause is more important to us than the hunger issue,” said Cheryl Welch, Director, Outnumber Hunger at General Mills. “We’re thrilled to give people the chance to make a difference in their own communities through Outnumber Hunger.”

    Specially-marked packages of General Mills products will feature an Outnumber Hunger code, as well as favorite Big Machine Label Group artists like Rascal Flatts. More than 10 General Mills brands, including Betty Crocker, Green Giant, Totino’s and Cheerios, will participate. Entering the code at OutnumberHunger.com helps Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of a local food bank. Participants enter their ZIP codes, and meals will stay in or near the area.

    Big Machine Label Group artists also will offer select special codes on Facebook and Twitter that help Feeding America secure five meals for local food banks. Big Machine Label Group artists who are encouraging participation include Multi-Platinum-selling superstar artists Rascal Flatts, Reba, Martina McBride, and The Band Perry as well as established chart-topping acts Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and newcomers Sunny Sweeney, Edens Edge, Ella Mae Bowen and Thomas Rhett.

    “It takes a Big Machine to Outnumber Hunger, and we have an opportunity to make a huge difference in local communities,” said Scott Borchetta, President and CEO, of Big Machine Label Group. “That’s why we’re thrilled to come together with our artists, General Mills and Feeding America to help the hunger issue in a significant way. Together we can Outnumber Hunger.”

    Additionally, the Outnumber Hunger partners have created an educational video with Rascal Flatts that highlights the issue of hunger and shows how anyone can get involved to help Feeding America. It will air during a Rascal Flatts theater event in New York City and in over 600 movie theaters across the country on the night of April 5. Tickets to the movie theater concert event can be purchased online at RascalFlatts.com/Changed

    “Our fans have always been strong supporters of us and our families,” said Joe Don Rooney, Rascal Flatts. “By being involved in Outnumber Hunger, we hope to provide that same support for those who may struggle with hunger. We’re grateful to have the chance to spread awareness of this important cause.”

    General Mills will donate $0.65 to Feeding America—enough to help secure 5 meals on behalf of local food banks—for every code entered. To make a difference in your local community with Outnumber Hunger, visit www.OutnumberHunger.com.
