ACM, CMA, and CMT-nominated duo Love and Theft, made up of singer/songwriters Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, first hit the scene with their runaway Top 10 single, “Runaway.” They followed it up with their #1 platinum single, “Angel Eyes,” from their self-titled album from RCA Records Nashville. The album also yielded the breakout hits “If You Ever Get Lonely,” “Running Out of Air,” and fan-favorite “Amen.” Their new single, “Night That You’ll Never Forget,” is the first single from their new album due later this year. Celebrated for the distinctive style, sparkling harmonies, and sonic depth, Love and Theft is currently hard at work on their next album with producer Josh Leo (Alabama) and can be seen on tour throughout the country.
Cedarburg, Wisconsin native Josh Thompson grew up working in the cement business, pouring concrete for driveways, patios and basements. It wasn’t until he was 21 years old that he purchased his first guitar. Thompson made the move to Nashville to pursue music in January 2005 and had a publishing deal within eight months. He stormed onto the music scene in 2010 with his debut album Way Out Here, which spawned hits “Beer On The Table” and “Way Out Here,” which have grossed over half a million downloads. Thompson recently released his sophomore album Turn It Up, which features his hit “Cold Beer With Your Name On It” as well as his current single “Wanted Me Gone.” A true road warrior, Josh performs over 200 shows each year and has also toured with Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, Daruis Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Hank Williams Jr., Justin Moore and Jamey Johnson, among others.
