Gloriana knew their third album Three would be different than their previous releases.
A “band on the run,” as Gloriana’s Tom Gossin explains to Radio.com, the country trio wrote and recorded the album over the past two-and-a-half years on the road. Being on tour with Rascal Flatts helped shape the album to include mostly upbeat, fun songs as those are the types of songs the band enjoy playing most every night.

Many of the tracks on the 12-song release include distinct drum loops and slight R&B influences, as can be heard on “Are You Ready”—a track Gossin wrote with Josh Kear, the first song the two have written together since 2011’s “(Kissed You) Good Night.” [Read More]
