Kelly Clarkson And Brett Eldredge Partner With Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® For Holiday Series

To celebrate the holiday season, exclusive music videos feature new hits and traditional holiday classics

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® kicked off the holiday season today with the release of its “Rocking and Stockings” content series with multiple Grammy Award-winning superstar Kelly Clarkson and platinum-selling singer-songwriter Brett Eldredge. The exclusive performances of new hits and traditional holiday classics premieres today on Cracker Barrel’s YouTube channel with Clarkson’s “Love So Soft,” followed by Eldredge’s “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” on Nov. 17. Fans can follow along as each new video launches weekly through Dec. 12.


“Rocking and Stockings” features four performances of new music from Clarkson’s recently released eighth studio album “Meaning of Life,” including her latest hit single, “Love So Soft,” as well as “Meaning of Life” and “Heat.” It also includes Clarkson’s new holiday track “Christmas Eve.” From his 2016 holiday album “Glow,” Eldredge performs traditional classics, including “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “First Noel.”


“The holidays are always a special time for us,” said Cracker Barrel Senior Marketing Manager Julie Ulmer. “We created ‘Rocking and Stockings’ to bring together two of music’s most beloved artists for exclusive performances as a joyful way to kick off the season and to help inspire the love and togetherness we hope our guests feel when they dine with us.”


“Christmas is far and away my favorite holiday and recording the music for ‘Glow’ was a dream come true,” said Eldredge. “I’ve been inspired for this record from a very young age, and I dreamt of the day I could record all these classic songs that I’ve loved since I was a little kid. I think we found a little magic on this album and Christmas is all about magic!”


For fans wanting more, Cracker Barrel is offering Eldredge’s fourth studio album “Brett Eldredge” and holiday album “Glow,” as well as Clarkson’s “Meaning of Life” album and children’s books “River Rose and the Magical Lullaby” and “River Rose and the Magical Christmas,” at its locations nationwide and online at shop.crackerbarrel.com.


“Meaning of Life” is the album Kelly Clarkson was destined to make with Atlantic Records; it is a collection of soul-inspired pop that immediately belongs among the legendary label’s classic canon. In addition to her new album, Clarkson also succeeded her New York Times Top 10 bestselling-debut children’s book, “River Rose and the Magical Lullaby” this year with “River Rose and the Magical Christmas,” both available now from HarperCollins.


While Eldredge’s chart-topping album “Brett Eldredge” shows the singer’s diverse and ever-evolving sound, his dream of creating a holiday album became reality with the release of “Glow” last year, which gave the singer a chance to record all the classic songs he loved as a child.


By partnering with artists through its Spotlight Music Program, Cracker Barrel provides guests exclusive access to content they can’t find elsewhere like the “Rocking and Stockings” performance series. Known for its Warehouse Sessions, Cracker Barrel has partnered with artists including Alison Krauss, NEEDTOBREATHE and Reba McEntire for live and taped performances from its Décor Warehouse in Lebanon, Tennessee. In February, Cracker Barrel’s partnership with a cappella group Pentatonix and singer-songwriter legend Dolly Parton won the artists a Grammy Award for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” for their unique remix of Parton’s 1970s hit “Jolene.” This was the first time the song had won the prestigious award since its release over 40 years ago.

Macy’s today announced the return of its popular American Icons campaign in early summer to celebrate the heritage, landscape, time-honored traditions and people that make America great. Now in its second year, the initiative will kick off in May with a variety of family events inspired by America’s favorite pastimes, fashions from beloved designers, all-star talent and a give back program to benefit those who have served our country.


“Macy’s celebration of America really connected with our customers and associates last summer,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “Our charitable program to benefit Got Your 6 and America’s veterans raised millions of dollars during our first American Icons campaign, and we are excited to once again support this important cause. We’ve also built on last year’s success with a parade of fun, summer-themed events and the latest fashion from popular brands represented by some of our country’s best known talents, including Ryan Lochte, Ireland Baldwin, Brett Eldredge and Jana Kramer, as well as Tommy Hilfiger’s ‘To Tommy From Zooey’ collection with Zooey Deschanel — all while paying tribute to the people, places and things that make this country so special.”


Give Back. Get Back. – Got Your 6

For the second year, Macy’s is partnering with one of the nation’s most innovative veteran empowerment initiatives, Got Your 6. In the military, “got your six” is a term that means “I’ve got your back.” Uniting the resources of the entertainment industry with a coalition of more than 30 veteran-focused, nonprofit partners, Got Your 6 is dedicated to improving veteran reintegration, celebrating veterans as leaders and civic assets, and putting their skills to work at home. The coalition focuses on six pillars of reintegration—jobs, education, health, housing, family and leadership, with a goal to change the conversation around America’s millions of military veterans.


Macy’s 2013 “American Icons” campaign raised funding for the nonprofit partners of Got Your 6, to benefit their commitment to veterans and military families. This funding supports the mission work of the coalition partners, including:

  • The Pat Tillman Foundation and Student Veterans of America that helped more college campuses adopt veteran friendly practices.
  • Team Rubicon that has deployed veterans and supplies for emergency disaster relief to complete more than 2,250,000 hours of service.
  • The 100,000 Homes campaign that expanded their vulnerability surveys to many more cities, helping house more than 21,000 chronically homeless veterans.
  • Hiring our Heroes—a nationwide effort to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment—was able to host more job fairs, create more resources and provide additional opportunities to veterans and businesses across the nation as they work to complete their pledge to hire 500,000 veterans.


To support Got Your 6 and its nonprofit partners, Macy’s again will offer a special savings pass to benefit the effort. Kicking offMay 17 with “Got Your 6 Saturday,” customers can give $3 at any register and receive a savings pass for a day they choose. One hundred percent of the purchase price will be donated to Got Your 6 and its nonprofit partners to empower returning veterans and military families. Exclusions and restrictions apply. Beginning May 14, visitmacys.com/gotyour6 for more information.


America-Inspired Merchandise Initiatives

From coast-to-coast, Macy’s customers will be able to shop for exclusive merchandise from America’s most popular brands this summer. Inspired by American design and style, the specially-curated collections will be available in stores beginning early May through the end of June. From fashion to accessories to home goods, shoppers can purchase the latest product from designers including Calvin Klein white label, Tommy Hilfiger, I.N.C. International Concepts, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Nautica, Finish Line, and more.


One of America’s best known design houses since 1968, the Calvin Klein brand continues to inspire today’s generation with its cutting-edge designs. Focusing on clean lines and a modern aesthetic, the Calvin Klein white label American Icons-inspired assortment captures the carefree spirit of our nation and the essence of 21st century style. International swimming sensation and 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte, and actress and model Ireland Baldwin, shine in the new print, digital and in-store American Icons advertising campaign.


The American Icons collection includes all of the Calvin Klein white label summer must-haves – sportswear, jeans, dresses, performancewear, swimwear, underwear, shoes and handbags.


Prior to the kick-off of the campaign, a capsule collection of dresses designed by actress, musician and style icon Zooey Deschanel and iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger, aptly named “To Tommy, From Zooey,” will be available in approximately 200 Macy’s stores beginning mid-April. The collection includes dresses ranging in price from $98 to $169.  Inspired by the 1960s and Deschanel’s love of vintage clothing, the capsule offers flattering silhouettes from classic coat and shirtdresses to a specialty peek-a-boo, with prints hidden inside the pleats. Crisp modern shapes are combined with nautical touches in Tommy’s signature palette of red, white and blue to create a look coined as “modical,” that is cheerful, bright and all American. In addition to the collection of dresses, Tommy Hilfiger has specially- curated “American Icons” merchandise available in womens, mens, kids, home, swim, shoes and more, available throughout the campaign.


The campaign for I.N.C. International Concepts, exclusively at Macy’s, features country music favorites Brett Eldredge and Jana Kramer. Set in Nashville, the two will be featured in print, digital and in-store advertising wearing a variety of fashion-forward pieces from the newest collection. The perfect backdrop for this campaign, Music City continues to be the No. 1 destination for country music stars – including Eldredge and Kramer – as they pursue the all-American dream. Eldredge released his debut album in 2013 and scored his first No. 1 with the hit single “Don’t Ya.” In addition, Eldredge has toured with Taylor Swift, been nominated for both ACM and CMA New Artist of the Year awards and performed in Macy’s 2013 Thanksgiving Day Parade. Kramer is a singer, songwriter and actress who found success on The CW’s “One Tree Hill” and continues to light up the country music scene with her sweet vocals and emotionally moving songs. She received the 2013 ACM Award for “New Female Vocalist of the Year” and her single “Why Ya Wanna” earned her the highest ranking chart debut by a solo female country artist since Taylor Swift in 2006. Customers can look forward to a bit of country swagger as Eldredge and Kramer unveil I.N.C.’s summer collection this May.


Additionally, actress and singer Lucy Hale will represent American Rag, available exclusively at Macy’s, through the duration of the American Icons campaign.


Throughout the campaign, customers who shop Macy’s American Icons special collections will not only enhance their already unique American style, but will also have the chance to take part in a variety of events and programs taking place across the country, including:
