Mike Eli is a talented singer with a voice that makes you listen. He sound a lot like a gritty Vince Gill. The last time I saw Mike and the Eli Young Band he had just closed on a house in Texas.

He was so excited, and was wondering how he was going to pay for it. I have been a fan of this band since their first hit "Always The Love Songs" came out and I told Mike that he would have no issues paying for the house.

Mike and the Eli Young Band parted ways with their old label and have recently signed to Republic Nashville, a label partnership between the Big Machine  Label Group and Universal Republic.  side label of Big Machine Records. They are label mates with country superstar Martina McBride, red hot trio The Band Perryand country newcomer Sunny Sweeney who is blazing a trail of her own these days.

Their new CD is not out yet, but the first track they have released is 'Crazy Girl". Get a preview of their new tunes when they release their EP digitally on May 3rd. I heard this song once and said it would be the tune that took the Eli Young Band up the ladder of success. WGNA Country 107.7 was proudly one of the first stations in America to play this awesome new song. Check out the video and you'll know what I'm hearing. A lot of people will be hearing about the Eli Young Band really soon.
