“They’ve opened so many doors for bands in country music, which I think is great, and hopefully we can do the same for other acts,” Jon Jones said. “[We] had a chance to play with them and they’re not only great musicians but also great people.”
“They really think out of the box musically, and we’ve always tried to be a band that [doesn't] just stay middle of the road,” Mike Eli said. “We really try to make music that is impactful and is hitting on new territory. I think that Zac Brown Band being as much of a success as they have, they’ve continued opening doors for bands like us.”
Eli Young Band is celebrating the success of their single, “Crazy Girl,” the band’s first Top 5 hit. They will be in New York City this week to perform the single on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman on November 3 before heading back to Nashville kick off CMA Awards Week. The band is currently on the road with Dierks Bentley as part of his Country & Cold Cans Tour.
