The duo that brought you the Top 10 songs "Runaway" and "Angel Eyes", as well as the heart-wrenching ballad "Whiskey On My Breath" recently released one of their most meaningful songs yet - "Love Wins".
It was simply a concept when Love and Theft stopped by Storme Warren's SiriusXM radio show The Highway. Warren loved the idea of "Love Wins" so much that he threatened to play their unfinished demo on the air for The Highway's millions of listeners if they didn't get into the recording studio and finish it.
Bandmates Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson went to the studio right away and cut the song.
Liles revealed that he and Gunderson wrote the song as a reminder to be "better dads, better husbands, and just better humans."
"We hope this song will have a lasting impact on the hearts of everyone who hears it," Liles said in an interview, and it seems that the world may need this song now, more than ever.
Just last week, the world was rocked when news spread about the bombing at Manchester Arena in England where 22 people were killed and left countless others with injuries. The bombing, which was ruled a terrorist attack, took place at pop star Ariana Grande's concert, where most of the attendees were in their early 20s or younger.
The duo shared a somber cover of "Love Wins" as a tribute to the victims who lost their lives, as well as anyone else affected by the horrific bombing.
"Our hearts go out to those affected by the Manchester tragedy. As a show of support we will be donating our proceeds from "Love Wins" downloads over the next month," they captioned the video.
