Shuttles Available For Free Gloriana Concert at Texas A&M Campus [VIDEO/INTERVIEW]
Texas A&M University of Texarkana and Kicker 102.5 is proud to welcome hot new country band “Gloriana” Saturday, Oct. 20 on the Bringle Lake campus of the University.
Admission to the concert is FREE and everyone in the community is invited. There will be a $10 cash per vehicle charge. Site opens at 4 p.m. and the concert begins at 6:30 p.m. with opening act Kayla Conn.
Here’s an interview I had with the event manager Celeste earlier this week about the show this weekend.
I think Kayla sounds a lot like Taylor Swift…What do you think?
Gloriana just wrapped up with their highest charting single “(Kissed You) Goodnight” which went to number two on the Billboard country singles chart. The album “A Thousand Miles Left Behind” has received rave reviews from it’s critics.
The country trio consists of brothers Tom Gossin, Mike Gossin and friend Rachel Reinert. They formed the band in 2008 in Nashville, Tenn. Their first single was “Wild at Heart,” released in 2009, and in that same year they opened up shows for Taylor Swift for two years. During that year they won an American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist and a coveted ACM Award for Top New Vocal Group in 2010.
The Gossin brothers who are from upstate New York and Reinert hails from Florida. They have been influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, and Rascal Flatts. They headlined their own tour in 2010 called “The Long Hot Summer Tour.”
Don’t miss your chance to see “Gloriana” Saturday, Oct. 20 at Texas A&M University-Texarkana presented by Texar Federal Credit Union.
