The outdoor wedding was held at sunset with 150 guests in attendance. Wedding attendants included the groom’s fellow Love And Theft band mates, Brian Bandas and Stephen Barker Liles, in addition to the groom’s father, Jeff Gunderson.
The couple’s first dance was to Michael Buble’s “Crazy Love.” Later that evening, Lyric Street recording artist Love and Theft took the stage to perform The Temptations’ “My Girl” for the happy couple.
Eric and Emily met in Nashville and began dating in the fall of 2006. He proposed last summer during a vacation to Charleston, South Carolina.
After returning from their honeymoon, Eric and Love And Theft band mates Brian Bandas and Stephen Barker Liles will join Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum starting April 22 on the Southern Voices tour with 45 dates booked through August.
After opening shows for Taylor Swift in 2008 and Jason Aldean in 2009, Love And Theft is gearing up to hit the road with Country music superstars Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum. The trio will be busy promoting their recently released debut album, World Wide Open, which features the top 10 smash, "Runaway," and their rapidly rising single, "Dancing In Circles." Love And Theft has been featured on The Today Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Access Hollywood, in the pages of Country Weekly and People magazine and has had its music included in promos for ABC’s daytime programming.

I’m definitely a fan of this trio, and I’m looking forward to seeing them on July 22, in Kingsport, Tenn., as part of this year’s FunFest! I think “Dancing in Circles” is must about my favorite song on the radio right now.
I have to run, I’ll talk to you all real soon!
