Gloriana releases debut single

Thursday, February 12, 2009 – Gloriana officially released their debut single Wild At Heart on Monday and debuted on iTunes with the single. The song charted on R&R two weeks before its official add and is currently 54 on the R&R Chart. This is the first single from Gloriana's forthcoming debut album on Emblem Music Group and was written by Matt Serletic, Josh Kear and Stephanie Bentley. Gloriana is Tom Gossin, Mike Gossin, Rachel Reinert and Cheyenne Kimball.

Gloriana just wrapped up a short run opening for LeAnn Rimes. They also will be part of Taylor Swift's first headlining tour. Gloriana will continue to perform several shows before the Swift tour, including opening for Brooks & Dunn Feb. 22 in Los Angeles.

Gloriana was formed when brothers Tom Gossin (27) and Mike Gossin (24) moved to Nashville in the winter of 2008 and began collaborating with Rachel Reinert (19) and Cheyenne Kimball (18). Before they even had a name, the four toured the Southeast, playing for free and coming up with different band names each night. Their first recordings soon found their way to Grammy Award winning producer Matt Serletic, who brought the group's sound to Emblem Music Group. Known for his work with Rob Thomas, Willie Nelson and Aerosmith, Serletic co-wrote and produced the band's debut and first single. The sound combines bluegrass with contemporary country music influences and four-part harmonies.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kiah heats up – Amythyst Kiah's music career has seemingly been a slow burn, but that well could be changing. She was part of the quartet that put out the very fine "Songs of Our Native Daughters" earlier this year and is about to launch a tour with CD-mates Rhiannon Giddens, Allison Russell of Birds of Chicago and Leyla McCalla to bring out songs about... »»»
Concert Review: Sweeney maintains her musical integrity – Sunny Sweeney has gone the big label route and even earned a hit with "From a Table Away," but truth be told, she's better off without the baggage of the bigs, especially given the consistent quality and musical vision that was so clearly and admirably on display on this evening. When the East Texas native started her career, she was... »»»

White embraces "The Hurting Kind" John Paul White, to paraphrase a Steve Earle song, may just be one of the last of the hardcore troubadours. By 'troubadour,' we mean one of those guys that lives to write great songs - more specifically, great country songs - and then get these songs into the ears of folks that... »»»
