Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, now known as Love and Theft, met in their early twenties. The two were raised in the south by pastors and brought up on gospel, oldies, and country music. Coming together as a duo was very easy for the two harmonists. July 24th, marked the release of their first album under the RCA Nashville label, and is the second studio album of their career. Their newest album is produced by Josh Leo (Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and is compiled of eleven songs including their first single, “Angel Eyes”, which scored them their first CMT Music Award nomination for Duo Video of the Year. The album also includes a range of songs influenced by other variations of music. From ballads like, “Town Drunk”, to country anthems like, “Girls Look Hot in Trucks”, this album has it all.
