SLCC’s Student Association welcomes American Country Award winning group Gloriana and guest artist Tyler Hilton to perform at the third annual fall concert.
This year, modern country group Gloriana continues its nation-wide tour with a stop at Taylorsville Redwood Campus’ Lifetime Activities Center on Wednesday Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
“The first two years [the Student Association] brought in pop-rock bands, so this year we wanted to do something new and target a different audience,” said Student Life and Leadership Intern Marie Squyres.
The modern country trio out of Nashville will feature their recently released second album “A Thousand Miles Left Behind,” as well as their new hit single “(Kissed You) Good Night,” along with select hits from their first, self-titled album.
Brothers Mike and Tom Gossin along with vocalist Rachel Reiner launched their career in 2009 when they spent two years on the road traveling and performing with Taylor Swift.
The group’s first, self-titled album featuring hit song “Wild At Heart” propelled the album all the way to No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in 2009
In 2010, Gloriana earned an American Music Award for breakthrough artist and a coveted American Country Music Award for top new vocal group.
Currently Gloriana is up for three American Country Awards including breakthrough artist of the year, single of the year “(Kissed You) Good Night” and music video of the year “(Kissed You) Good Night”.
26-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist Tyler Hilton will perform as well. Hilton also has a strong acting background. He joined the cast of the WB teen drama One Tree Hill in 2004, playing a troubled singer named Chris Keller. Hilton also landed the role of Elvis Presley in the 2005 movie Walk the Line.
Gloriana personally recorded an invite to all SLCC students to come out and enjoy the concert. The YouTube video can be seen here.
