Yallwire Chats Up Country Music Group Gloriana
Yallwire scored some face time with Gloriana before their opening performance on Taylor Swift's Fearless Tour 2010 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. The four band members - Tom Gossin and Mike Gossin (vocals, guitar), Rachel Reinert (vocals, tambourine) and Cheyenne Kimball (vocals, mandolin) - casually chatted on their tour bus and even broke out into song with an Elvis/Sinatra infused "Happy Birthday" for Rachel's 21st birthday.
Touring in support of Swift and Kellie Pickler for the second year in a row, Gloriana talks with Yallwire about the intricacies of being an opening band and - as they only formed the group in 2008 - continuing to tighten up their performances, always striving to change things for the better. The band also makes mention of being featured on the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, noting that "it's one of the coolest things that's happened to us." Of course, there's also that little tidbit about living a dream come true by playing music for a living with their best friends in the world. Performing on stage in front of 20,000 amazing fans every night is hardly anything to overlook either, huh?
