Gloriana introduces their album with “Gold Rush”. The upbeat tune immediately showcases their tight harmonies and sets the tone for a great album ahead. The energy continues throughout the album with “Sunset Lovin”, “Wanna Take You Home”, and several others. “Carolina Rose”, co-written by Tom Gossin, is a beautiful song that holds personal meaning for him. The song relates to the struggle he & his girlfriend endured while he was out on the road touring. A happy ending is in store for the couple as they plan to wed in October of 2013. “Go On…Miss Me” is fun, sassy song. Rachel’s lead vocals give a perfect delivery of the track with just the right amount of attitude. “Soldier Song” pays tribute to those that serve to protect our country. With the powerful introduction of, “Here’s a song for the ones who sacrifice so much. So that we can be free in this country that we love”, this song resonates long after it is over. “Doin’ It Our Way” serves as an anthem for having a good time and will make for a perfect fit on Country Radio.
