It seems that not too long ago, the Eli Young Band was the best little musical secret in the State of Texas.
That’s not the case any longer. Propelled by their latest full-length album, 10,000 Towns, the group’s stock continues to rise across the United States and Canada.
10,000 Towns, the Eli Young Band’s fifth album, debuted in the number one position on the Billboard Country Album Charts while also placing in the Top 5 Album Charts upon release this past March. “Drunk Last Night”, the first single released from 10,000 Towns was the group’s third song to attain the coveted number one position.
It has been a long, steady rise for bassist Jon Jones, drummer Chris Thompson vocalist Mike Eli and guitarist James Young. And that suits the band, which performs at Moncton’s Casino New Brunswick this Saturday night, just fine.
