GGG on Music City Roots – “That Suit”

We really had an amazing time down in Nashville and getting to return to Music City Roots.

It’s always a pleasure getting to share the stage with a diverse range of acts and getting to meet new people who are pursuing a similar life of rambling and rockin’. This is a very nice write up of the show and with a special shout out to my Manual Couture suit, which was made right in Nashville by the legendary Manual Cuevas. Check it out HERE.

Ward talks songwriting, cowboy chords and new album with The Boston Herald!!

GGG Guestlisted

“Ward Hayden’s voice is something. It’s a vision, a beauty, a force of nature. Sometimes I think the songs don’t matter as long as Ward can sing his Girls Guns & Glory tunes with that voice. But underneath his vocals are simple, smart country chord progressions that don’t quit.”

Many thanks to Jed Gottlieb and The Boston Herald, was a lot of fun getting to talk about the songwriting and arrangement process. Three chords and the truth!!

#1 Country Album in Norway!!

I gotta be honest, we love Norway!!

We had the pleasure of touring in Norway last year, which was a blast and was a true highlight of the year. And we are very excited that we’ll be returning to Norway in October of 2017 to tour behind our new album, “Love and Protest”.

We got the news last week and wanted to be sure to share it with you that Love and Protest was ranked as the #1 Country Album of 2017 in Norway. How cool is that?

#1 Country Album

We even managed to find out way onto the Top 20 Albums Overall, landing at #5. We couldn’t be happier and truly can’t wait to return in 2017.

We’re in the process of booking our next European tour for Oct/Nov 2017, so be sure to stay tuned. We hope to release the full schedule of dates in the next few weeks.

Rolling Stone “Rock ‘n’ Roll” Video Premier!!

A huge thanks to Rolling Stone for premiering our new video for “Rock ‘n’ Roll”.

We worked with John Gannon to put this video together and the concept was as simple as could be: there is no concept. We wanted to capture the song in the place where it became a song. No frills, no effects, just the band rockin’ out in the basement.

Click below and take a look, and please be sure to share on social media. We really want the world to know our new album exists and a huge part of making that happen is your continued support. Thank you so much for getting behind the new album and we hope you dig the new video!!
