Love And Theft's Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles are bringing the party to country radio with the release of their brand new single, "Night That You'll Never Forget." The song celebrates the surprisingly fun nights that memories are made of. Fans can join the party and be part of the "Night That You'll Never Forget" lyric video by posting their own party selfies to Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #LnTselfies. The duo may have a night they'll never forget in Las Vegas on Sunday as they are nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The awards ceremony will be broadcast live Sunday night at 8 on CBS. In addition to the show, Stephen and Eric will also perform at the ACM Party For A Cause Festival on Saturday. (Photo Credit:

Songs are often recorded piecemeal.  Meaning, a musician or singer will go into the studio alone, or with a couple of other players . . . and then leave it to the tech people to put it all together later. A good example of that is "Highway Don't Care" with Tim McGrawTaylor Swift and Keith Urban.  Keith played guitar, but he didn't hear the final product until later.  He says, quote, "the first time I heard the whole thing completed was on the radio, and it sounded amazing."  The song is up for three ACMs:  Single Record of the Year, Vocal Event of the Year and Video of the Year.  Keith thinks it's funny he's being honored for such a short day's work, saying, "I've never been nominated so much for a guitar solo in my life."
