Eli Young Band Makes Personal 'Thank You' Calls

on .

Thanks so much for helping us get back to back number ones on the radio charts with "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" and "Crazy Girl." Last week, we asked all of you to send us your phone numbers and we set aside 2 hours on Sunday to call as many of you as possible and personally THANK YOU for the support.

We had A LOT of great conversations! Thank you all for sending us your numbers. We tried our hardest to get to all of you but if we missed you THANK YOU so much for supporting us & our music. It means the world to us!




EYB Celebrates Second Consecutive #1 with "Even If It Breaks Your Heart"

on .



Eli Young Band tops both Country radio charts today with their second consecutive #1 hit off their critically acclaimed album LIFE AT BEST. This afternoon, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” catapulted into the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart and the USA Today/Country Aircheck powered by Mediabase Chart.

The overwhelming response from radio listeners serves as a reminder that the band (rather than any one song) has made a palpable connection with an insurmountable number of country fans. The song made the climb to the top in a mere 26 weeks; making this ascend 10 weeks faster than their award-winning, PLATINUM hit “Crazy Girl.”

"The message that is in 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart' lives in every one us, said Jimmy Harnen, President of Republic Nashville. He added, “we all have dreams that we strive to achieve regardless of how challenging the journey. In many respects this song is reflective of EYB's drive, hard work and incredible talent to be where they are today! Back-to-back #1 singles with 'Crazy Girl' and 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart,' sold out shows, platinum and gold records and millions of fans. I have said it before and I will say it again, this could not happen to a nicer or more deserving group of people."

When the news of reaching #1 caught up to the band this morning, Jon Jones (bass player for EYB) said, “It means the world to us to have back to back number ones.” He added, “this one is especially meaningful to us because the song resonated with us like nothing before. The song is our story and that it has been embraced by country fans and country radio is proof that dreams really do come true.“

Eli Young Band and LIFE AT BEST have become an international smash-hit with country fans the world over. In the U.S., the band has earned two #1 hits a country radio; a PLATINUM single and a GOLD single, along with an ACM Award win for Song Of The Year. While in Canada the band has been certified GOLD and topped the country radio chart and the CMT Canada video chart.

EYB has earned an avalanche of award nominations including three Teen Choice Award nods for Choice Breakthrough Group (all genre), Choice Country Song and Choice Country Group. The awards will air this Sunday, July 22 on FOX from 8:00-10:00pm ET and fans can vote leading up to the event at teenchoiceawards.com.


EYB Adds Gold To Platinum and Breaks Attendance Record at Lone Star Park

on .

Eli Young Band follows the breakout success of their PLATINUM hit “Crazy Girl” with another GOLD single from their Republic Nashville album, LIFE AT BEST. This week “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” was certified GOLD by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies. At their recent Lone Star Park show, the band was the sole performer and still shattered the attendance record – which they previously set – with over 26,000 hard tickets sold.

The Top 5 hit, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” is the fastest-rising single of EYB’s career and parallels their journey. While already achieving platinum-status and #1 on the Country Charts in the United States, the lead single, “Crazy Girl,” has now gone GOLD in Canada. Up north, the single has reached #4 at Country Radio and the accompanying video peaked at #1 on CMT Canada. EYB now joins labelmates Taylor Swift and The Band Perry for the sales achievement.

Milestone moments keep evolving for the Eli Young Band, who garnered three nominations at the upcoming Teen Choice Awards (Choice Country Song; Choice Country Group and Choice Breakout Group). In the last year, they have won their first major award – ACM Song Of the Year – and have also been nominated for CMT and Billboard Music Awards. Their breakout hit, “Crazy Girl,” was named Billboard’s “#1 Country Song of 2011."

Due in part to the success of LIFE AT BEST – debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and #2 on the iTunes All Genre Chart just behind Jay Z/Kanye West and Adele – EYB has made national television appearances on Late Show With David LettermanThe Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live! They have also received praise in The New York Times, People, Associated Press, American Songwriter, The New Yorker, USA Today, New York Post, Billboard and Country Weekly.

The Eli Young Band helped kick off Rascal Flatts' CHANGED TOUR last Friday (6/15) in Hartford, CT and will also continue with their own headlining dates from coast to coast. For tour dates and more, visit EliYoungBand.com/tourdates.
