NASHVILLE, TN (May 20, 2019) — MULTI-PLATINUM hitmakers ELI YOUNG BAND are back on top with “Love Ain’t,” their fourth career #1. Amplifying their chart-topping smashes and signature career favorites off THIS IS ELI YOUNG BAND: GREATEST HITS (The Valory Music Co.), the four-piece again reigns both the Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts this week. The “emotional and powerful” (CMT) anthem serves as a “reminder of the power of true love” (Taste of Country), intensifying the adjoining music video that follows quadruple amputee military veteran Taylor Morris recovering with selfless support from his wife Danielle. Watch here.
“Getting back here to the top again is a blessing that both Country music fans and Country radio have given us. We do not take this for granted,” shares EYB’s frontman Mike Eli. “It’s a blessing that carries on to our families and our teams that have been behind us every single step of the way. We humbly thank you all for making this happen for us.”
The compelling endeavor also earned a Group Video of the Year nomination at the forthcoming 2019 CMT Music Awards – fans can vote now for “Love Ain’t.” Dann Huff produced the Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley, and Shane McAnally-penned song that adds to the over 2.8 billion streams EYB has racked up. They will perform their latest #1 hit alongside PLATINUM “Drunk Last Night,” 2X PLATINUM “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and 3X PLATINUM “Crazy Girl” on May 31 on Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series. This national television appearance dials-up momentum for upcoming festival appearances including CMA Fest at the Chevy Riverfront Stage and HGTV Lodge in Nashville, TN, on June 6.
Unique in modern Country music – EYB is a true band who plays their own instruments, writes their own songs, and clings fast to their Texas roots. This latest offering follows their album FINGERPRINTS, which showcased a signature mix of heartfelt phrases over driving rhythms. EYB’s impressive trajectory has also produced the chart-topping 10,000 TOWNS with singles earning Billboard’s #1 Country Song of the Year and ACM Awards Song of the Year. They have previously earned multiple nominations from GRAMMY, CMA, CMT, ACA, and Teen Choice Awards. EYB has appeared on TODAY, Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Fox & Friends. While selling out venues as a headliner from coast-to-coast, they have toured with Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Darius Rucker, and Dave Matthews Band.
