The Halo Over Country Trio Stealing Angels

You know that feeling you get when you instantly love a song? Well, multiply that by five, and that’s how I feel about Stealing Angels right now. When I first heard “He Better Be Dead,” I knew this one tune had the kind of twangy vocals I dig and the girl-power/man-bashing message I’m drawn to. (No idea why because I’ve been happily married for a hundred years and don’t have a man-bashing bone in my body.) But when I listened to the rest of their EP, I bought it immediately because I just had that gut feeling there was something there. And now I know what it is. It’s in their genes. Tayla Lynn is Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter, Jennifer Wayne is John Wayne’s granddaughter and Caroline Cutbirth is a descendant of Daniel Boone. If you only download one song, make it the haunting “If I Was So Bad.”
