Tuesday, November 25, 2014 – Coming off their third consecutive CMA nomination for country duo, Love and Theft released "Whiskey On My Breath," the first single and title track of their next disc coming Feb. 10, 2015.

Love and Theft have enjoyed hits with "Angel Eyes" and "Runaway." - the

The album from Stephen Barker-Liles and Eric Gunderson features largely acoustic arrangements.

"In some ways, we've played it safe in the past, and I think we're over that now," Barker-Liles observes. "I don't mind that songs like 'Whiskey On My Breath' may be a little controversial because they're honest, and I think that they'll make people think about how they feel about life."

"The songs on this album show a side of us that's legitimately us, and how we've grown up and matured in the time that we've been in this business," continues Gunderson. "But there are plenty of songs on this album that are just good, fun songs, and that's still a side of us too."

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter – Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs. Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years.
