Nashville, TN – March 14, 2016 –
Chart topping duo Love and Theft, known for their high-energy
performances and emotionally forthright lyrics, have signed to Curb
Records, one of the world’s leading independent music companies.

“We’re extremely excited and proud to have Love and Theft joining the
Curb Records family,” says Jim Ed Norman, CEO of The Curb Group. “The
chance to work with great artistry is first and foremost a privilege,
but getting to add the incredible management team at Vector and long
time friend and award winning Producer Josh Leo, is uncommonly
rewarding. 1-2-3-GO!”

Taylor Childress, Vice President of The Curb Group adds, “This is
AWESOME! We couldn’t be more fired up to welcome Stephen and Eric to the
Curb family.  They are true artists in every sense of the word and we
can’t wait to get to work with them and their team on taking their
artistry to even greater heights.”

With their third record Whiskey On My Breath available now, the
ACM/CMA/CMT-nominated duo Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson reveal
growth as songwriters, as they push boundaries and build momentum that
started with their #1 country smash “Angel Eyes” and Top 10 hit
“Runaway.” The pair also saw top 40 success with “Dancing In Circles,”
“Runnin’ Out Of Air,” “If You Ever Get Lonely,” and “Night That You’ll
Never Forget.”

The title track from Whiskey On My Breath has recently been given a shot
of adrenaline by Bobby Bones who fell in love with the song while
touring with Love and Theft. The iHeart radio host was inspired by the
powerful ballad touting the strength of the single as the next number
one Country hit.

Whiskey On My Breath, which Liles and Gunderson co-produced with
longtime friend Josh Leo (Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nitty Gritty Dirt
Band, Restless Heart), was released independently via their own label,
Hate & Purchase Music, allowing them greater liberty when writing
and recording.

“We realized we had a chance to give fans a record that best represented
us as artists when we decided to release the new album independently,”
says Gunderson. “By signing with Curb, who are an independent company
themselves, we have an amazing opportunity to work with them while
keeping our integrity as artists.”

“We are honored to be signed to Curb Records,” Barker Liles adds.  “Mike
Curb and Jim Ed Norman are both legends who share our passion for music
and independence, so to be a part of a team who understands and
believes in who we are and the music we are making is inspiring.”
