Love and Theft singer, NC native welcomes baby

Eric Gunderson - Matthews native and one half of the country duo Love and Theft - welcomed his first child March 10 in Nashville. He and his wife Emily named the baby boy Camden William Gunderson.

A statement from the band's publicist reports: "He arrived earlier than his expected May due date and will be spending some time in the hospital, but mother, father and baby are all doing well. Eric and Emily are moved by the tremendous outpouring of warm wishes from their fans, family, and country radio, and look forward to sharing more updates soon.”

Love and Theft will be back in the area opening for Tim McGraw at Charlotte's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre May 3. Check out the pair's current single "Runnin' Out of Air" above.
