It’s hard to keep up with all the news about Gloriana these days. After 2010 – a year of awards, hits, international tours and packed stadiums they have blazed into 2011 hotter than ever. From joining all the Motown greats for a performance at the White House (an amazing soulful performance you can view thanks to PBS.org), to Mr Tom Gossin flashing his sexy side in a spread in Cosmopolitan Magazine, to the new release climbing the charts, “Wanna Take You Home,” 2011 promises to be their best year yet.
“Wanna Take You Home” is the first release of a new album that will be out later in the year. Between now and then it looks like they’ll be burning up the roads given their just announced tour schedule. They’ll be headlining for Toby Keith on a few shows and will be headlining for non other than Gloriana for the rest. Check out Gloriana.com to see when they may be on stage in your area.
Of special note – Gloriana is featured in RAM Country on Y! Music this week. You can watch the acoustic “Wanna Take You Home” performance, plus an exclusive interview with the band. When an incredibly cool guitar catches your eye as you watch this video when want you to know that it is the custom guitar that Tom Gossin commissioned Jay to build for him.
While Mike Gossin primarily plays electric guitar with the band (he actually plays banjo for this new tune) we look forward to seeing him play his custom Lichty for those unplugged acoustic moments on tour. The crowd will go wild just seeing Mike and his guitar tuned-up together.
