CRITICS ‘WILD’ FOR GLORIANA AS SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM HITS STORES

Nashville, TN – Top new country group Gloriana released their debut album today (Emblem Music Group/Warner Bros. Records) to critical praise. “First Sugarland, then Lady Antebellum and now Gloriana…destined for glory,” proclaimed People Magazine, who gave GLORIANA three and a half stars. “Incredible four-part harmonies…a sonic delight,” said Billboard Magazine. “Catchy country-pop,” stated USA Today. “On the debut album there's a real affection for the gender-war harmonies of Fleetwood Mac and the open-road earnestness of John Mellencamp,” said the Los Angeles Times. “A harmonic blend of country character and rocking pop beats, infectious enough to launch the group to the top of the charts,” said OK! Magazine, just to name a few.

And while the critics rave, the fans act, buying up the group’s debut single “Wild At Heart” to the tune of more then 200,000 digital copies, giving Gloriana the best selling song from a new country act in 2009.

Gloriana is in New York City this week to promote the release and have been very busy speaking to the likes of Access Hollywood, Alloy.com, FOX, Sirius/XM, Seventeen.com, Reuters Television, CBS, and ABC News Now “What’s The Buzz,” among others. The band also stopped by the People offices to perform for the staff and answer questions about the new album and opening up for Taylor Swift on her “Fearless 2009 Tour” http://www.people.com/people/videos/0,,20295252,00.html, which will have the band returning to New York City August 27th to perform at the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden.
