Love and Theft Lend Their Voices to Help Heal a Still-Hurting Las Vegas
The one-year anniversary of the Route 91 tragedy had country artists such as Jason Aldean and Jake Owen all expressing their sadness over the sheer tragedy of the event. Love and Theft also joined in, but used their music do the talking for those still healing from the physical and emotional toll of that fateful night.
As part of the Stoney’s Rockin’ Country event in Las Vegas on Sunday (Oct. 1), the country duo and friends helped raise over $30,000 for various organizations that support the #LoveWins and #VegasStrong campaign.
"It’s safe to say that love truly won Sunday night in Vegas with such an emotional evening of deep connection between my friends and family,” Stoney’s founder Chris Lowden says in a recent press release about the event, which included performances by Drew Baldridge, Austin Burke, Tony Jackson and Stevie Monce.
“I can’t even begin to express my love and admiration for the artists who sacrificed their precious time away from their families to donate their talents to help heal our country family and community here in Vegas.”
And while the “Runaway” hit makers will return to Las Vegas on October 13 to play at The Yard at Topgolf, it’s what Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson have planned early next year that will get fans truly excited. Word is that the duo will release their new album come January—which marks their first since 2016’s Whiskey On My Breath. Their current single “You Didn’t Want Me” is set to be included on the new album.
