Gloriana gets ready for Long Hot Summer

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 – Gloriana are set to kick off their Long Hot Summer Tour 2010 June 24 in Colorado at Country Jam USA and ending in September in Ohio.

Gloriana held a contest and a live chat where fans got the chance to name their tour. The 40-date Long Hot Summer Tour 2010 will make stops at major Fairs and Festivals across the country as well as headlining performances.

"We are really looking forward to this tour - with longer sets and performances in new cities across the country - it's a great opportunity to get out there some more and meet the country music fans who have already shown us so much support," said Mike Gossin.

"This is definitely going to be a Summer to remember and we cannot wait," said Rachel Reinert.

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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
