The name Girls Guns & Glory has become offensive to some and an impediment to moving the band forward. We never intended for that to be the case, but times change and we feel the time is right to brand a new name. We have decided to change the band's name to Ward Hayden & The Outliers. We have always considered ourselves outliers in the world of country music.
Which is also why we’ve always considered that being a cowboy is a state of mind. And to continue adhering to The Cowboy Code we want to represent our band with a name that will describe who we are more accurately.
–Ward Hayden & The Outliers (Ward, Paul, Josh & Cody)
