I have a confession to make. I have a big girl crush on Rachel Reinert and I always have. Something about other OC girls taking on the country music genre makes me immediately gravitate to them and want to do everything I can to support them. Reinert was one of the main reasons I fell in love with Gloriana. The times I met her while working in radio and the sound of her perfectly on pitch, smooth as honey voice, made me a huge fan of the band. She’s been an inspiration when it comes to fashion, how country artists should treat their fans, and the graceful way she’s handled all the obstacles the band came up against in their 8 years.
Today she made the announcement that she was leaving Gloriana. And though it’s the end of the era, and I’m saying goodbye to a band whose music has helped me through so many things in my life, I’ve never been happier to hear that another woman is going after her big dreams. After all, this is why Reinert moved to Nashville back when she was in her late teens, hoping to conquer the country music market on her own. And the time has come. Lets get behind this girl with all we’ve got and show her we believe in whatever comes next.
Rach, you forever have a fan and a friend here. Lets do this!
