On Saturday night, current AMA Award nominee Eli Young Band took the stage at Globe Life Park to perform to a crowd of over 15,000 hometown fans.
Openers Maddie & Tae and Cody Johnson got the crowd warmed up with hits “Girl In A Country Song,” and “Me and My Kind.” Highlights from the evening included the crowd of 15,000 serenading Green and his band along with Alan‘s rocking set including #1 smash “Every Storm Runs Out of Rain” and “Watching Airplanes.”
Eli Young Band delivered a 12-song set including #1 hits “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” and “Drunk Last Night” as well as fan favorites chosen from an online poll, “So Close Now,” “Everything Is You” and “Highways And Broken Hearts.” The crowd whipped into frenzy when the band wrapped their set with their multi-platinum #1 hit “Crazy Girl.” Lead singer Mike Eli remained on stage for over an hour after the show signing autographs and taking selfies with enthusiastic and appreciative fans who braved the cold to share the moment.
