Edens Edge said farewell to a founding member of the group, Hannah Blaylock, who left upon her own accord and with much disappointment. They played their final show on February 22nd at The Grand Ole Opry. The Arkansas natives made their sentimental Opry debut on March 5th, 2011.
“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,” says Dean.
Getting Edens Edge back on the road and performing for fans is Dean’s priority, “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.”
“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,” Cherrill said excitedly.
As Edens Edge goes on 10 years together they have become a part of the fabric of country music in Nashville and look forward to continuing to work toward their dream of becoming Grand Ole Opry members. They will be sharing updates, adventures, exciting news and answer any questions you have on the original Edens Edge social platforms. Twitter: @edensedge | Facebook: facebook.com/EdensEdge
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.
“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,” says Dean.
“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,” says Cherrill.
It will be interesting to see where the group goes from here. Hannah was the “pipes” of the trio, and it makes for an interesting dynamic to go to a duo from a trio.
