We wer thrown for a loop.
The guys in Love and Theft had thought about releasing She’s Amazing for their next single, but plans changed. And you know what? That’s cool because here at CML we love when new country music comes out and the next single from Love and Theft is great. Check out Angel Eyes…
Angel Eyes – Love and Theft
Love and Theft is a talented duo. The former trio had a couple hits a few years ago before they got caught up in some label BS. Now they’re back with a new label and seem eager to get back on the charts. And by the sounds of things these guys are ready to come back in a big way.
The new song is Angel Eyes. It’s going to be the comeback record for the group. The song is about a girl. She’s a little bit of a bad ass. She likes to drink whiskey. She likes to run wild and live on the wild side. She’s a little crazy, but she’ll love you with all her heart. She’s got angel eyes, but the devil comes out every once in a while.
If you’ve ever been around a woman you know the best of them all have a little devil in them. I think we all have that in us somewhere. We make a little trouble sometimes and when it’s needed we can settle down and be proper. It’s the devil times, though, that make life interesting. We can’t live by the rules all the time can we?
Love and Theft are great. The guys have this really unique sound. There aren’t any songs like this on country radio right now. Angel Eyes is going to find a ready audience when it starts going for radio station adds.
Country fans love this kind of song. They can put themselves in the places of the folks in the song. There are plenty of angel eyed girls out in the country world that have a little wild side to them. They are going to love this song.
And then there are the guys like me. We love those angel eyed girls and even if it drives us crazy we love that they have a little devil in them. It’s that crazy side that keeps things interesting. We don’t really want a boring life. We may think we do. We may say we do, but really we’re looking for some excitement…not much but a little bit.
Angel Eyes has a great melody. That’s always the first thing I listen for with a new country song. This tune has it and that’s going to win over listeners on the radio stations. The song is easy to sing along to.
Love and Theft have found their place in country once again. When you’re this talented it’s just a matter of time before you come back around and find success. I think we’re going to be hearing from Love and Theft for a while.
What do you think of Angel Eyes?
