Eli Young Band is having a summer to remember. The group is on the road as part of Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tour which has them playing in amphitheaters, as well as 18 stadiums, across the country. They are soaking up every moment of the opportunity.
“The Chesney tour is the biggest tour that we’ve ever been able to be a part of,” Mike Eli said. “It’s a huge deal for us to be invited to be a part of this tour and not to mention it’s a huge opportunity to be able to play our music in front of a lot of fans of Kenny’s that may not have been able to be exposed to our music and our live show.”
“More than anybody else in country music, Kenny’s built this culture around his tour, with the songs that he plays and the shows that he brings every night to this obscene level,” Jon Jones added. “It’s gonna be a great learning experience for us to figure out how to kinda try to match it and to hang.”
