Duo Love and Theft (Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson) hold the No. 1 spot this week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Country Aircheck with their RCA Nashville debut single “Angel Eyes.” The duo is celebrating two career milestones they have achieved over the past few days. Last Thursday, they received the news that “Angel Eyes” has been certified gold by R.I.A.A. and Monday, “Angel Eyes” hit the top of the charts and is Love and Theft’s first No. 1 single.
“Thanks to my co-writers Jeff Coplan and Eric Paslay for changing my life and letting me write this song with them,” said Love and Theft’s Eric Gunderson. “I guess dreams really do come true! A No. 1 song and a gold single in one week is so exciting. Thank you to the amazing RCA promo team! They are the best and we are so fortunate to be working with them. This is one week that I will never forget.”
“I can't believe it! I'm truly humbled and grateful,” Stephen Barker Liles said. “Thank you so much to RCA, country radio, and all our fans for making one of our biggest dreams come true.”
In addition, “Angel Eyes” holds the No. 6 position this week on the Billboard Digital Country Songs chart and is the lead single from Love and Theft’s self-titled album, which debuted at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The music video for the song is rapidly approaching two million views on VEVO.com.
