Wanna Take You Home

Album: A Thousand Miles Left Behind (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Gloriana is an American Country music group comprising brothers Tom and Mike Gossin, Rachel Reintert and Cheyenne Kimball. This is the lead single from their second album, which was written by Tom Gossin along with the band's producer Matt Serletic, who has also worked with Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty. It was released to Country radio on March 28, 2011, and went on to become the group's fourth Top 40 hit.
  • The song is a reflection of Gloriana's touring during the summer of 2010. Tom explained to The Boot: "It was the first time we were playing outdoors and during the daylight. We'd done the Taylor Swift tour prior to that and it was really dark, so you couldn't really see everyone. When you're outside during the day, you can really see everyone's face and reaction. You cruise the crowd, people watch. We noticed that when we played 'Wild At heart,' our first single, a lot of people would start dancing. We would then pick out the really good dancers in the crowd, or really hot chicks. One time there was a guy with a Shake Weight, he ran right up to the front and danced around with it. [laughs] We cracked up. But I wrote it from my perspective on stage, it was all about watching cute chicks dance, and who doesn't like that?"
