The band posted the following message on their website on July 11:
As you may have heard, Cheyenne Kimball chose to leave our band. We need you to know that Gloriana will absolutely continue on. We couldn’t imagine our lives any other way.
We are 100 percent committed to all of you, our fans and supporters. As planned, we will debut our new music video this week and will continue touring and supporting “Wanna Take You Home” while finishing up our new album. We wish Cheyenne the best of luck in whatever lies ahead for her.
Tom, Rachel, and Mike – Gloriana
Gloriana first hit the country music scene back in 2009 with their breakout gold-certified hit single “Wild At Heart.” On the heels of releasing their self-titled debut album, Gloriana won the fan-voted-on American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist. The album’s success led to two years on the road, during which the band performed in front of millions worldwide as Taylor Swift’s handpicked opening act on her Fearless Tour. They also opened shows for Jason Aldean, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, and the Zac Brown Band. In 2010, Gloriana won the Academy of Country Music’s Award for Top New Vocal Group and were nominated for a Teen Choice Award for “Choice Country Group.”
Earlier this spring the band released their latest single “Wanna Take You Home,” a song set to be the lead single on their yet to be named sophomore album. The band recently wrapped up shooting the official music video for the single which is still slated for release later this week.
