October has been a month full of special invitations for Love and Theft. First, the hot country trio have been tapped to open what is sure to be one of the biggest country tours of the next year.

"We are ecstatic about this amazing opportunity to tour with one of our huge influences and favorite artists of all time -- Tim McGraw," LNT's Stephen Barker Liles tells The Boot. "We all grew up listening to him and we're very humbled and honored to get to share the stage with one of the greatest performers and artists in music history."

This week, it was also announced that Love and Theft will host the CMA Awards' pre-telecast. Eric, Stephen and Brian will hand out CMA Broadcast Awards, which honor the Broadcast Personalities and Stations of the Year, along with the National Broadcast Personality of the Year.

With all the great news they've received lately, Love and Theft are giving back. The guys are offering fans seven free downloads: the 'Don't Wake Me' song and music video, a live version of their debut single, 'Runaway,' three video interviews and one video that tells the story behind Love and Theft.
