A Thousand Miles Left Behind
Product DescriptionCountry music trio Gloriana present their much anticipated second studio album, A Thousand Miles Left Behind on Emblem Music Group/Warner Bros. Records. 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" has become the fastest rising single of the trio s career to date.
"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. 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.

Depth and maturity, sweetness and sadness, better than I had hoped, August 1, 2012
Storylover (Philadelphia, PA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A Thousand Miles Left Behind (Audio CD)This has been longer coming than I had hoped, and some of the harmonies have changed now that they are down Cheyenne Kimball. But instead of letting this stop them, they went for the sweeter, the deeper cut, and they got it. Yes, this is mainstream country pop, but it is sung with conviction, and the banjos, and harmonica driven tunes are comforting in a way that never becomes too cloying. This is a superbly crafted, brightly produced album that doesn't seem too overproduced, that stands up to further listens, and gives me great hope that these folks are in it for the long haul. give them a chance, and they'll take your hear along with your ears. Solid, sweet, heart tugging country.
