Last night, Republic Nashville artist Eli Young Band took to the field during halftime for the Houston Texans first ever lights out halftime show. The band performed three of their most popular hits including the #1 smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Dust” and the ACM Song Of The Year winner “Crazy Girl.”
The group was sporting Texans jerseys along with Breast Cancer awareness ribbons and wrist bands in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Fittingly, during the band’s smash #1 hit song “Crazy Girl” a video montage of breast cancer survivors flashed across the jumbro trons, paying homage to the many brave women who have battled and won the fight against Breast Cancer.
In a season-long partnership with the Houston Texans, EYB has filmed a video for their rendition of “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” which plays just before kickoff at every Texans home game this season.
The Eli Young Band has three No. 1 hits, two Grammy nominations and an Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year for their hit “Crazy Girl”, and are currently nominated for the 3rd consecutive year for the Country Music Association Group of the Year.
