– Gloriana debuted its new live video The Way It Goes
on CMT today during the Top 20 Countdown. In response to requests for more content from Gloriana while on the road opening for Taylor Swift on her FEARLESS 2009 Tour, the band shot a live video for the song.
The single currently sits at 17 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart, 78 on the Top 200 Digital Singles Chart and is the best selling single from a new country act in 2009. Gloriana will release their self-titled debut album Aug. 4 on Emblem Music Group/Warner.
The video was directed by Chad Denning for Gamma Blast. Shot during a couple of performances on the tour, the foursome wanted to capture their live show, while also capturing what it is like for these newcomers to be on the road. Gloriana has been on the road with Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler since late April.
