Gloriana sees how far they can go with new single
Monday, October 5, 2009
– Gloriana, fresh off the success of their debut single, are about to release How Far Do You Wanna Go?
as their second single.
"We received so much support from fans and country radio for our debut single, which we are extremely grateful for," said Mike Gossin of the band. "The fans seem to be having a positive response to "How Far Do You Wanna Go?" on the road so it's a really exciting time for us to get this song out to radio. It's a great follow-up to "Wild At Heart" and also happens to be my favorite song on the album!"
How Far Do You Wanna Go? was written by Gloriana producer Matt Serletic, Jeffrey Steele and Danny Myrick. It follows their successful debut single Wild At Heart, which landed in the Top 10 on country radio charts and was the best selling single by a new country artist in 2009 having sold more than 350,000 copies to date.
Gloriana's self-titled album, which debuted in second on the Billboard Country Album Chart and number 3 on Billboard's Top 200, has sold more than 100,000 copies. The band has opened shows for Taylor Swift with that gig ending Oct. 11 in Minneapolis.

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.
