RCA Nashville duo Love and Theft will be performing their hit single “Angel Eyes” on ABC’s “GCB” this week. Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson will make their debut appearance on the drama this Saturday, April 29th at 10 pm EST.
“Performing ‘Angel Eyes’ on GCB was definitely a killer experience,” says Stephen. “I started watching the show from episode one and I really love it. I grew up a preacher’s kid so I can closely relate to a lot of the dialog. We are thrilled to be involved with such a fun new show!”
“Angel Eyes” is the debut single from the duo’s brand new studio album being released on July 24th. The self-titled record is something that the pair is pretty excited to be releasing on their brand new label:
“This really feels like a new beginning for us,” says Stephen. Eric adds, “We have a new label (RCA), a new producer (Josh Leo), there are two of us now instead of three, but the core of Love and Theft is still the same. Our sound is driven by harmonies and we’re a band who writes, records and performs honest, soulful country music.
Love and Theft were nominated for Duo Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. It’s their first nomination at the fan-voted award show, and it’s something the duo is celebrating this week:
Stephen says, “We are stoked to be nominated for our first CMT award! This video is really special to us because we have a lot of close ties to this video. My dad plays the preacher in the video and our family and friends are part of the bonfire scene. We couldn’t be more excited. We are truly grateful.”
