Gloriana and Tyler Hilton in Concert Friday
Meredith College will feature Gloriana as the headliner of the College’s 2011 “Sizzlin’ September” concert on Friday, Sept. 16. Singer/actor Tyler Hilton, who appears on The CW’s “One Tree Hill,” will open the show.
Update: The Sizzlin' September concert will be held in Dorton Arena on the NC State Fairgrounds.
Gates open at 7 p.m. for the show, which will begin at 8 p.m.
Gloriana was the bestselling debut country act of 2009, with a self-titled album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 3 on the Top 200 chart and spawned the gold-certified hit single “Wild At Heart.”
Gloriana also won the fan-voted-on American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist, as well as the “Nationwide On Your Side” honor at the CMT Awards. 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.”
The show is the seventh annual “Sizzlin’ September” concert, which is sponsored by the Meredith College Campus Activities Board.
