Love and Theft‘s Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson are enjoying exciting times, having recently scored their first number-one single with “Angel Eyes” and their first-ever award nominations for New Artist of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year. And next month, they’ll hit the road with Jake Owen, but they’ve been spending the summer on tour with Brad Paisley, and the guys say they’ve been having a lot of fun. They told Sony Music :  Stephen: “Paisley tour’s awesome. We’re havin’ a good time.”  Eric: “The Virtual Reality World Tour. We’re playin’ on the ‘Virtual Opry’ stage, which is a pretty real depiction of what the Grand Ole Opry stage looks like in Nashville.”  Stephen: “The virtual version.”  Eric: “Yeah, it’s virtual. But it’s been great fun. We’re out there with Kristen Kelly and then Jana Kramer. We get to hang out with those guys. We’ve become close with their bands and stuff. It’s kind of like we’ve got our own little traveling separate tour ‘cause it’s the plaza stage, they set up a bunch of cool exhibits and stuff. But Brad takes care of us. He takes us out to do fun stuff, his catering’s good…”  Stephen: “Mmm-hmmm.”  Eric: “His show is fantastic. He’s got this one thing where it’s like a 3-D, like, laser show almost. It’s really, really cool.”  Stephen: “It’s really sweet.”  Eric: “Like a Star Wars theme type thing. You can tell he’s still a kid at heart.”
