“Angel Eyes” is the duo’s lead single from its self-titled album. The song was co-written by Jeff Coplan, Eric Paslay and Love and Theft member Eric Gunderson. The song holds the No. 2 position this week on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout chart as well as the Billboard and Mediabase country songs charts, and sits at No. 6 on the Billboard Digital Country Songs chart. The music video for “Angel Eyes” is rapidly approaching two million views on VEVO.com.
“Ever since I started playing music, it has been a dream of mine to have a song or album go gold,” says Gunderson. “Thank you to everyone who made this happen for us.” Love and Theft member Stephen Barker Liles adds, “Holy Moly! We are so excited about our first ever gold single. Anytime people spend their hard earned money, it’s an honor and we are truly humbled.”
The duo is having a blast out on the road this summer on Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality World Tour, performing on the “Virtual Opry” stage through September 29.
