Country group Eli Young Band, from Texas, is taking over the Veil Pavilion stage to show the audience that country music with a dash of rock is always a good thing.
The band was started by Mike Eli and James Young, who turned their country loving duo into a quartet by adding bassist Jon Jones and drummer Chris Thompson. The guys opened a show for Miranda Lambert in 2003 and caught the eye of music producer Frank Liddell, who later signed them to his label Carnival Recording Co.
The Eli Young Band was officially signed and released the debut album Level in 2005 featuring hit songs “When It Rains” and “That’s The Way.” The group went on to perform in front of thousands of people while headlining at venues across the country.
Infused with the passion for music and the thrill to succeed, the four guys signed with Republic Records and released the hit album Jet Black and Jealous in 2008, which featured songs like “Radio Waves “ and “Always The Love Songs” that went on to becoming Top 40 hits.
Recently, the band released Life At Best, which chart topped as No. 3 in both the Country Albums and Top Digital Album categories. It also landed as No. 6 on The Billboard 200.
