Exciting Dual Single Release for Eddie Sanders


NASHVILLE, TN - Engelhardt Music Group is proud to release the final two singles from the highly acclaimed Eddie Sanders album, WALKING IN THOSE SHOES. The title tracks, “Walking In Those Shoes,” and “Gods Hidden Angels,” are available for radio today. As the year comes to a close, these two songs offer the inspiration, peace, and hope we may need in the world as we now know it.

“Walking In Those Shoes,” written by Eddie Sanders, Don McAfee, Dennis Crouch, paints a sad and familiar story with its lyrics, reminding us that humility and empathy are important to have as we go through life each day. 

“Gods Hidden Angels,” written by Eddie Sanders, Don McAfee, Dennis Crouch, Mark Thornton, is a light-hearted tune that suggests the importance of not judging a book by its cover, because with God's Angels “you'll never know who they are, when they're standing there.” 

A Bluegrass Gospel-toned collection, WALKING IN THOSE SHOES has seen multiple tracks on the charts, with the last hit single, “Folded Up Flag” earning the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Today weekly Gospel chart, and over 40,000 streams on Spotify.

Joining Eddie on the record is his all-star cast of musicians: Scott Vestal (banjo), Tim Crouch (fiddle), Dennis Crouch (bass), Casey Campbell (mandolin), Cody Kilby & Pat McGrath (guitars), and Glen Duncan & Don McAfee (harmonies). The album was produced by Glen Duncan & Adam Engelhardt.

Radio programmers and hosts can find the tracks at Airplay Direct or by contacting Eddie's radio team for a direct download link, and the full album is available from popular online distributors.

Eddie Sanders is a world-class Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist from McAlester, Oklahoma. Eddie was born into southwest bluegrass royalty, and his father is legendary bluegrass festival and concert promoter, Freddie Sanders.  The Sanders Family Bluegrass Festival in McAlester was one of the biggest and best bluegrass festivals west of the Mississippi, and one of the favorite venues for bluegrass acts Bill Monroe, The Osborne Brothers, the Lewis Family, Jim & Jesse, Ralph Stanley, and nearly every major bluegrass act of the last 40 years.  The McAlester festivals were shaped and guided by his major bluegrass influences:  Mac Wiseman, Larry Sparks, and The Osborne Brothers. He also developed the professionalism that he learned from the best acts in the business, and also learned the power of a song and a love for original material.  Eddie was also strongly influenced by Merle Haggard and Gene Watson and soon started writing his own songs.

For many years Eddie Sanders was guitarist and lead vocalist with the widely-acclaimed band, “Signal Mountain”. Eddie’s fellow bandmates included: Shawn Camp (IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Earls of Leicester); Dennis Crouch (Elton John, Elvis Costello); Billy Joe Foster (Bill Monroe, Ricky Skaggs); Tim Crouch (The Whites, Mike Snider); and southwest bluegrass luminaries Donny Catron; Don McAfee; and The Bonham Brothers, Virgil and Glen. One of the finest bluegrass bands of that era to be sure!

Eddie’s songwriting skills increasingly brought him to Nashville for songwriting sessions with Shawn Camp, Ronnie Bowman, Dennis & Tim Crouch, Glen Duncan, and Adam Engelhardt.  Eddie wrote The Del McCoury Band’s hit single, “You Could Be Me”. Kix Brooks & Wayne Toups recorded a duet “Down Where The River Ends”, penned by Eddie and Shawn Camp.

Eddie’s work, both as a singer and a songwriter, combines the best elements of the old and the new. With a family tradition steeped in the history of bluegrass music, and influenced by the best of what has come along since, Eddie Sanders’ new recorded songs are a powerful statement of what the best bluegrass music has always been, and what the best bluegrass music will be in years to come.
