Gloriana announces new single

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 – Gloriana will release their brand new single, Can't Shake You, to radio on Sept. 10.

The single, written by Tom Gossin, Stephanie Bentley and James Slater, is from the band's second studio album "A Thousand Miles Left Behind."

"Can't Shake You is about not being able to shake somebody from your mind after a break-up," said Gossin. "Most people have been in this situation and can relate. It has certainly become a fan favorite out on the road so we are excited to get it to radio."

The new single is the follow-up to their Gold certified hit single (Kissed You) Good Night. The trio recently recorded a special acoustic version of the brand new single in Nashville, along with the songwriters Bentley and Slater.

Gloriana is currently out on the road performing headlining shows. "A Thousand Miles Left Behind" was released July 31 on Emblem Music Group/ Warner Bros. Records.

Why did Cheyenne Kimball leave? It's the question Gloriana fans want answered: country music's "Who Shot JR?" And even the remaining band members may not know. What's for certain is that Kimball, the multi-threat 22-year-old vocalist, reportedly just stopped showing up for Gloriana tour dates.
