Country music trio Gloriana will release their much anticipated second studio album A Thousand Miles Left Behind on Emblem Music Group/Warner Bros. Records July 31st. The band had a hand in writing all 11 tracks on the album and worked with GRAMMY Award winning producer and Emblem Music Group label owner Matt Serletic (Willie Nelson, Matchbox 20, and Aerosmith). Their single “(Kissed You) Good Night” is currently #15 on the Billboard Country Singles chart and # has become the fastest rising single of the trio’s career.
“We’ve grown up a lot as a band and have really honed in on our skills and found our sound,” Mike says. “On this record, we wanted to tell stories and I think people will be able to relate to a lot of these songs because they’re honest and come from a place that’s real,” added Rachel. “Like any new act, we were finding ourselves on the first record — in the recording process and as musicians,” Tom says. “The new album really just feels like us, who and where we are now, to the point where we know exactly what we want to do and how to get there.”
Tom, Mike, and Rachel have funneled everything they’ve learned into their second album, A Thousand Miles Left Behind, intent on revealing more of themselves as artists. The result is an alluring mix of up-tempo songs, “Wanna Take You Home,” “Sunset Lovin’,” “Go On…Miss Me,” “Doin’ It Our Way,” and graceful, heartfelt tunes: current single “(Kissed You) Good Night,” “Can’t Shake You,” “Turn My World Around,” “Carolina Rose,” and “Soldier Song”. Gloriana worked with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters for the album including Josh Kear (Carrie Underwood and Lady Antebellum), Hillary Lindsey (Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift), James Slater (Martina McBride and Tim McGraw), Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean and Big & Rich), Stephanie Bentley (Martina McBride and Faith Hill), among others.
Gloriana released their debut self-titled album in 2009 and quickly became the best-selling debut country act, winning the 2009 fan-voted American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist and the 2010 Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Vocal Group. They were named one of Billboard Magazine’s Top Country Groups for 2010 and have continued to win over fans across the country on tour. For more information on Gloriana please visit: www.gloriana.com.
