Hannah Blaylock Responds to Edens Edge Departure

Edens Edge

When Edens Edge front-woman Hannah Blaylock left the group…many wondered why? Well, she took to Twitter to give a glimpse into the reasoning behind leaving the group she helped create.

Hey y’all. Dreams and visions change and that’s life and that’s ok. And even though change is hard sometimes, its what can promote the best kind of growth. I am here to say, I have stepped down as a member of Edens Edge. I don’t know the future- but I do know singing is my life and country music is my soul and its fans are the best fans there is. Im the luckiest girl in the world&so privileged to know &have met all of you.U have brought a love&a light into my life that I never knew b4. I am so thankful and so grateful for all the blessings and opportunities I have been given. I can’t say that enough. I wish Dean and Cherrill the most success,happiness, & fulfillment in the world. The times we have shared 2gether I hold dear to my heart. Lets keep on chasing our dreams and loving people along the way. Hope to see you on the road.

Well, that’s not real specific, but it doesn’t sound like she’s giving-up music…Maybe she’s just giving up being a member of a group. Could a solo career be in the works for Hannah? I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.

Edens Edge Goes from a Trio to a Duo

Edens Edge

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:

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.

Eden’s Edge Are Too Good To Forget About

Edens Edge

Eden’s Edge have been on the scene since 2006, but their self-titled debut only found its way into our lives in June 2012. They won a contest sponsored by CMT in 2006, signing their record deal with Big Machine Records in 2010. Despite their first single, ‘Amen’ being released a year later, it was more than a year after THAT that their album hit shelves. In that time, however, they released an EP and were touring extensively, under headliners Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts. Now, despite getting their album to #9 on the country charts, I feel like there’s not enough of a buzz around Eden’s Edge.

The album begins with their by-now well-known single, ‘Amen’. The first time I heard it on the radio I was instantly drawn in by their upbeat, treble sound supported by acoustic guitars, banjo, dobro and mandolin, and Hannah Blaylock’s powerful, infectious vocals, but still very country in its style and inflections. She’s got that ‘vocal tremble’ technique down to a tee. The song, as you may know, is about a small town’s preacher’s son and his horrible girlfriend who finally leaves and the celebrations that ensue, including the narrator ending up getting together with him. It’s very catchy and I’m tempted to say it has pop sensibilities musically, but it still feels very firmly modern country. The ‘amen’ encourages singing along and joining in which I can imagine would be great live. The next song, ‘Swingin’ Door’, has more of a bluesy twang with a fantastic melody on the chorus. There are a lot of musical elements to this song but it doesn’t come across as messy or too complicated, and much of it is lead by the picked banjo. The line ‘I ain’t your swingin’ door’ sums up the lyrical content, the narrator saying that her boyfriend can’t just keep wandering in and out of her life, picking her up and dropping her again for the next girl in the next town. The imagery makes me think of a movie-style western town and turn-of-the-century costume which I personally think would be great as a music video if they ever released it as a single (which I think they should and probably will). ‘Skinny Dippin’ is again very treble-based, but at first is far more stripped back production-wise than the previous two tracks. The bluesy twang continues in this song and reminds me of country jamming round a campfire with a much fuller and more complicated mix on the chorus, though it doesn’t detract from the original feel. This is a cheeky song that doesn’t need much explaining theme wise!
