Keni Thomas and Cornbread

Keni Thomas and Cornbread

Gloryland Gets Great Review in Billboard

KENI THOMAS "GLORYLAND" Producer(s): Brent Maher, Mark Selby Writer(s): Keni Thomas, Billy Montana, Henry Paul, Dave Robbins Publisher(s): various Genre: COUNTRY Label/Catalog Number: Moraine Records (CD promo)

Originally Reviewed: June 11, 2005 The new single from Keni Thomas' debut, "Flags Of Our Fathers: A Soldier's Story," is another strong offering that demonstrates why this up-and-coming indie artist is a talent to watch. Like recent chart-topper Craig Morgan, Thomas retired from the military and turned his attention to music. Thomas co-wrote this infectious uptempo number with Billy Montana and Blackhawk members Dave Robbins and Henry Paul, who also contribute some tasty vocal accompaniment. The song chronicles the lives of school friends setting out to conquer the world and explains how their lives unfold. Thomas has an immensely likable voice, and Blackhawk's harmonies soar beautifully. It's one of those songs that's perfectly suited to summertime radio, so roll down the windows, turn it up and sing along.
