Love and Theft Talk Songwriting on New Album, ‘Whiskey On My Breath’

Love and Theft

Love and Theft’s Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles recently sat down with CountryMusicIsLove to discuss their latest album, Whiskey On My Breath, and how at least one of them is a co-writer and on every song on the project.

That said, not each tune was written specifically for this album. “Wrong Baby Wrong,” which was released by Martina McBride in 2010 on her Shine album, was written by Stephen, the Warren Brothers and Robert Ellis Orrall. The pair discuss their decision to include it on their latest record in the video below.

Additionally, the pair talk about the party tune “Let’s Get Drunk and Make Friends,” which was penned during a writers trip to Stephen’s family cabin and “Tan Lines,” another result of writers trip, this time to the beach.

We also get the duo’s thoughts on the latest project from Bob Dylan — who inspired the band’s name with his 2001 album Love and Theft — an album of Frank Sinatra covers.
