– 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.
Gloriana recently won the Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Vocal Group of the Year and the American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Gloriana is now nominated for a 2010 Teen Choice Award for Choice Music: Country Group.
