CURB RECORDS' PLATINUM-SELLING DUO LOVE AND THEFT RELEASE NEW MUSIC VIDEO, "NEED TO BREATHE," EXCLUSIVELY WITH PARADE MAGAZINE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Love and Theft release their new music video “Need to Breathe,” today, October 31, 2018 – exclusively with Parade Magazine, which calls it a "cultishly creative masquerade video." Following their sold-out European tour, the platinum-selling duo is excited to release a brand new music video as they build toward an album release in early 2019!
“We were able to stretch our creative wings a little bit with this video! We had a few different ideas and Grant really helped bring them to life. The video shows a different side of us creatively and I’m excited to see what people think,” said duo member Eric Gunderson.
“Need to Breathe” exemplifies Love and Theft’s unique sound as the duo’s bright, breezy style delivers their call for a love so powerful it’s essential to life. Directed by Grant Claire for Artist Integration, the video’s distinct silent film influence and cultish theme provides a spooky, seasonal touch.

CHEYENNE NATIVE AND RESERVE WORLD CHAMPION BRODY CRESS WINS BACK-TO-BACK SADDLE BRONC TITLES AT CHEYENNE FRONTIER DAYS
First Saddle Bronc Rider since 1936 to win back-to-back titles at CFD
CHEYENNE, Wyoming -- Cheyenne native, cowboy Brody Cress rode Smith, Harper & Morgan's Midnight Cowboy into history at the 122nd Cheyenne Frontier Days, when he became the first saddle bronc rider since 1936 to win back-to-back titles. Cress goes into history as the first back-to-back winner since Turk Greenough accomplished the feat in 1935 and 36.
"You know, it’s a blessing to be able to ride in front of so many people who helped me get to where I’m at, being able to repay them and represent them as good as I can, as well as representing this rodeo all over the world. To be able to come here, with how much history there is behind it and how hard it is to win this rodeo, it’s definitely a blessing to be able to come here do it a second time.” -Brody Cress, Back-To-Back CFD Saddle Bronc Champion
This isn't the first time Cress carved his name in the history books. In the summer of 2017, Cress became the first cowboy in the sport of rodeo to win Salinas, Cheyenne and Pendleton, all in the same season. He went on to be crowned the Reserve World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider at the PRCA Wrangler National Finals in the same season. Cress is currently sitting second in the world standings right behind Jacobs Crawley and is poised to be a contender for the 2018 world championship.
COUNTRY ROCK ARTIST STEVIE MONCE RELEASES NEW EP, STAY ON FIRE, JULY 13
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Following the exclusive streaming premiere of the title track with Taste of Country, Country Rock artist Stevie Monce releases his highly anticipated EP -- Stay On Fire -- today. The concept EP encompasses the ups and downs of a relationship from the initial meeting, then falling in love, followed by breaking up and the sorrowful reminiscing that follows. Monce teamed up with Rebekah Liles for the title track, sister of Co-Producer and Love and Theft member Stephen Barker Liles. Taste Of Country had this to say about the blazing duet:
"The song is a juxtaposition of contemporary country production elements and a gritty, soulful vocal performance from Monce, whose influences comprise classic rock and roll as well as southern roots music. Liles' aching harmony adds an extra layer of yearning to a song that's about a couple trying to find a way to keep the passion and excitement of their relationship alive in the face of their day-to-day challenges." -- Taste Of Country
The lead single, "Named This Town You," premiered on Nashville Country Club on June 14. The somber track tells the story of breakups and the "getting over you" stage, constantly being reminded of love lost and the little things you took for granted along the way.
"Growing up we all go through breakups and think it’s the end of the world – that we will never find another person to make us feel that way again," Monce said. "The truth is we do move on but this song is about that tough time between losing love and finding love again."
Stay on Fire is available for purchase on iTunes and available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
Monce will host an EP release party on July 27, 2018, at Stoney's Rockin' Country in Las Vegas, NV.
