Gloriana member gets engaged

Sunday, March 18, 2012 – Gloriana's Tom Gossin announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Jamie Moffett during a show in his hometown in upstate New York last week.

The couple, who met when Gossin moved to North Carolina as a teenager, celebrated their 10-year anniversary on March 1 with a surprise proposal by Gossin.

No official wedding plans have been made yet as Gloriana is currently out on the road in support of their latest single, (Kissed You) Good Night, from their forthcoming second studio album "A Thousand Miles Left Behind."

"The timing could not have been more perfect - we were with close friends on our anniversary. I dropped to one knee with the ring and asked the love of my life to marry me," said Gossin. "She was caught totally by surprise but said yes. We could not be any happier right now and want to thank everyone for their loving words and support during this amazing time in our lives."

A Thousand Miles Left Behind CD review - A Thousand Miles Left Behind
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. A few tweets later, the bridges were burned, right on the verge of this record's release. The bandmates went into revisionist mode, expunging all traces of their former »»»
Gloriana CD review - Gloriana
It is interesting that Gloriana shares its name with a 1953 English opera, as they sound much the same --powerful, scripted and slightly overdramatic. The group's tight-knit harmonies are the crux of this 13-track album; they gorgeously weave and contrast strong 2-, 3- and 4-parts into almost every verse. Occasionally the group over sings, but then, they are fighting to be heard over layers of unneeded production. Given the ages of the foursome (teens to mid-20s), it's only natural »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. 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: Walker takes no prisoners – Country music has enjoyed its share of funny performers over the years from Minnie Pearl to the vibe of Hee Haw. In more recent years, Cledus T. Judd has filled the song as a parodist. And then there's current musician/comedian Wheeler Walker Jr., who in his real life is a comedian by the name of Ben Hoffman. Wheeler would not exactly be... »»»
Concert Review: Eagles finish well – The Eagles headlined the first night of The Classic West, which - with Fleetwood Mac topping the second night's bill - could have also accurately have been retitled The Dysfunctional Southern California Band Festival.

Mayhayley's House CD review - Mayhayley's House
For years, Lonesome River Band was proud to be "Carrying The Tradition" of bluegrass music. Then, with last year's release they began the process of "Bridging The Tradition" of bluegrass to something a little more progressive, a little more modern. Now, "Mayhayley's House" proves that LRB is continuing across that bridge. »»»
Positively Bob Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan CD review - Positively Bob Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan
The reasons musicians elect to record full-album tributes are as varied as the results. Willie Nile's previous album "World War Willie" was a fiery collection of roots rock that didn't delve far from the approach that served him across 35 years as a recording artist.  »»»
The Nashville Sound CD review - The Nashville Sound
Jason Isbell's "The Nashville Sound" doesn't cause the immediate buzz of the singer/songwriter's previous efforts, so you may need to give it a little time to grow on you. But because Isbell simply doesn't make bad records, this one's just good in different ways, with a longer release cycle. »»»
