Former trio Love and Theft is back as a duo, after the exit of Brian Bandas — with a new record label and a new single. “Angel Eyes,” their debut single on RCA Nashville, was officially released to radio on November 14. But the new single isn’t the only thing Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson celebrated on Monday. The duo’s mothers were both born on November 14, in the same year.
“You can’t make this up,” Keith Gale, V.P. of National Promotion for RCA, said. “When Stephen and Eric told me that November 14 was the birthday for both of their moms, I thought that was cool. But when they told me their moms were also born the same year, I thought, ‘this is a really cool and authentic story.’ We didn’t have any idea that November 14 was such a special day for Love and Theft until after we had chosen their add date. The guys told me about this while we were driving around the country on their radio promo tour.”
