July 27: Singer-songwriter, guitarist, and mandolinist Cheyenne Kimball - formerly with Gloriana- is 23-years-old today.

Cheyenne Nichole Kimball was born July 27, 1990. in Frisco, Texas. At age 8, she began playing the guitar and has written around 200 songs.

In December, 2002, at age 12, she read a newspaper article about auditions for America's Most Talented Kids. She won a role on the show and flew to L.A. and, after a few months, she came home as first prize winner with $50,000.

Her debut album, The Day Has Come was released in July 2006 coinciding with an MTV reality series following her entry into the music industry. This album produced a chart single on the Billboard Hot 100 in "Hanging On."

To further promote her music, she has an MTV television show called Cheyenne, which premiered on May 31, 2006 in the U.S. and a month later June 21, 2006 in Canada.

Cheyenne  also appeared on the Aquamarine movie soundtrack with the song "One Original Thing," which was released as a single in October 2006. 

On December 5, 2006 Cheyenne's reality show DVD was released, and Cheyenne's song "Four Walls" was released as a single in January. In 2008, Kimball put her solo career on hold and joined the country music band Gloriana, in which she sang and played mandolin.

The band made its chart debut in 2009 with the single "Wild at Heart," a Top 20 country hit and released their self-title debut album in August of 2009. The band served as one of the opening acts for Taylor Swift's Fearless Tour in 2009.

After two more Top 40 country singles, Gloriana began work on their second studio album in 2011. The band released the first single from the album called "Wanna Take You Home,"which was the last Gloriana single to feature Kimball's vocals.

Reports surfaced stating that Cheyenne did not return to the band's bus after a show in Missouri on July 8, 2011 and was not present at the band's concert the next day. On July 11, 2011, it was announced on Gloriana's official website that Cheyenne had left the band. She announced her departure on Gloriana's official Twitter page on July 9, 2011, however her tweet was later deleted.

The reasons surrounding Cheyenne's

departure from Gloriana still remain unknown. She currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee and continues to work on new music.
