NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The members of country duo Love and Theft view the last few years as addition by subtraction.
First they lost their record label. Then Brian Bandas, the third member of their trio, quit. But with a new deal with Sony Music Nashville imprint RCA Nashville and a single chugging up the charts, Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles love their new lives.
Liles says the same musical influences, goals and visions for the band.
You can't blame Gunderson and Liles for feeling nervous upon the release of their self-titled second album, which came out last week. They've been to this point before only to have everything fall apart when their two previous labels shut down.
