    Eli Young Band’s 10,000 TOWNS made its debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, marking a career first for the band of brothers. The chart-topping album scored EYB their best first-week sales to date, landing them a coveted Top 5 spot on the Billboard 200. The album also claimed the #1 spot last week on the iTunes Country Albums Chart upon its release.

    “Wow! This is exciting news. This is another one of those career milestones you dream about. We couldn’t be happier,” said Mike Eli.

    Critics around the country continue to churn out rave reviews. Associated Press complimented the band saying 10,000 TOWNS, “gives plenty of reasons for cities across America to embrace them with open arms.” While Chicago Sun-Times boasts,“(EYB) continues to prove why they matter, why they REALLY matter to country music, with the release of 10,000 TOWNS.” The Dallas Morning News claims, “10,000 TOWNS has succeeded in doing what the Eli Young Band set out to do: make a fun record their fans will want to hear live.”

    The ACM Vocal Group of the Year nominees wrote more than half of the songs on 10,000 TOWNS and co-produced the record with Frank Liddell and Justin Niebank. The amped up level of involvement in the creative process makes them even more thankful for the success of the new album. “We really wanted to record songs that would be fun for our fans,” said James Young. “We’ve also learned to follow our gut when it comes to song selection and recording. We wrote a lot more for this record and had a chance to co-produce the album as well. We’re just glad our fans are enjoying it.”

    While the album has received glowing reviews, the band’s radio singles are also getting recognition. EYB’s latest #1 smash “Drunk Last Night” was tapped as #6 on acclaimed music critic Jody Rosen’s Top 100 Songs of the Year list in New York Magazine. Their new single, “Dust,” was described by Country Weekly as “an absolutely relentless performance by the band, powered by raging guitars on the chorus, is a perfect compliment to the lyrics, giving you the sound-to-sense feeling of movement and desperation.”

    The group is currently touring Australia with Darius Rucker and will hit the road this summer with Jake Owen to perform the new songs for fans across the country.

    Fueled with a #1 single, #1 album, an extensive tour schedule and additional praise from top-tier outlets like USA Today, Rolling Stone, Billboard and American Songwriter, EYB is poised for a SUCCESS!

    November 13, 2013 0 Comments

    On Saturday night, EYB headlined the first-ever Eli Young Band House Party at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. With over 18,000 people in attendance with ticket prices ranging from $25-$60, the band's first annual House Party was a smashing success!

    EYB pulled out all of the stops inviting friends to join in on the fun. Reining ACM Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square and Easton Corbin who have each topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart twice opened the show. Followed by Warner Brothers artist and Texas touring powerhouse Josh Abbott Band. Each did a masterful job of getting the fans into the party spirit.

    The crowd of eighteen thousand roared with delight chanting, ELI-YOUNG, ELI-YOUNG, as the band ran out onto the stage. The band performed 17 songs during an energetic 90 minute set including fan favorites “When It Rains,” “Highways and Broken Hearts” and “Guinevere.” Fans screeched with delight when singer Mike Eli introduced friend and hometown hero Pat Green who joined the band in singing Green’s hit “Take Me Out To The Dancehall.” They whipped into frenzy yet again when the band sang their current Top 10 hit “Drunk Last Night.” Just when the fans thought the band had pulled out all of the stops, Lucy Hale of ABC hit show, Pretty Little Liars fame joined the band in singing their #1 hit “Even If It Breaks Your Heart.” For the close of their high energy set the band invited Thompson Square, Josh Abbott and Pat Green back to the stage to join them for a rowdy and raucous performance of “Come Together” by The Beatles.

    After a wild round of applause, hugs and high fives backstage with their family and team, EYB took the stage once more for an encore performance of their ACM award winning (double platinum) #1 hit “Crazy Girl.” Mike Eli, lead singer of the band ended the night by thanking their fans for coming out and making their first House Party a wild and memorable night. He also promised the band would be back next year.

    “This was a big moment for us,” said Mike Eli. “We were humbled by how many people showed up. We opened for Chesney in stadiums all summer. Headlining a stadium ourselves was AMAZING! It was also nice to have our long-time friend Pat and our new friend Lucy with us on stage for such a special moment. Can’t wait for the sequel!”
