2009 Recipient: Gloriana

After four weeks of voting and thousands of votes, the fans picked Gloriana to receive the Nationwide Insurance On Your side Award. This hot new group features brothers Tom and Mike Gossin, along with Rachel Reinert and Cheyenne Kimball. The Gossin brothers grew up in Utica, N.Y., and later moved to Nashville, where they met Reinert through her MySpace page. Kimball approached the Gossin brothers and Reinert following a gig at a Nashville nightclub. Once the four musicians decided to start working together, they embarked on an intense period of songwriting and live performances. Their self-titled debut album will be released Aug. 4.
