In celebration of Veteran's Day, we are giving away "Soldier Song," which we wrote after our overseas tour last year. Since then, we've had the opportunity to play shows at a hand full of military bases across the country and continue to be inspired by our troops. We owe so much to our veterans and this song is our small way of paying tribute to anyone that has served or is currently serving in the military. Click here to get your free download. Thank you SO much for all you have done to keep us safe. Happy Veteran's Day!
-Tom, Rachel, and Mike
The lyrics to Gloriana‘s brand-new single ‘(Kissed You) Good Night’ were written in honor of all the guys in the world who are the ones responsible for making that “first move” with a girl after a date night out. Gloriana’s Tom Gossin co-wrote the tune along with hit songwriter Josh Kear (Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Need You Now,’ Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Before He Cheats’), and it is the first release from their forthcoming album on Warner Bros. Records.
“It was actually the very first writing session that I had had in the time period when we were thinking about starting a new album,” Gossin tells Taste of Country. “We hadn’t even officially began writing for the new album, but I had a chance to get together with Josh. He was one of the writers on ‘Wild at Heart,’ and he’s just written some of my other like completely favorite country songs out there. I just really jumped at the opportunity. I was anxious to meet him and get the chance to write. That was actually our first time writing together.
