Eli Young Band Sells Out Rodeo Club In Minutes

See also

The Eli Young Band is coming to the Rodeo Club in San Jose this Thursday. If you don't already have tickets, forget it! The show sold out in minutes. That seems to be happening a lot. Country music is on fire in the Bay Area. We are very lucky to have a great country radio station, KRTY, that continues to bring us amazing shows.

Mike Eli and James Young met at the University of North Texas where they became dorm roommates their freshman year. They played guitar and eventually began writing and singing songs together. They formed the acoustic duo, Eli & Young, while attending the University of North Texas. Chris Thompson and Jon Jones joined them later on and they became the Eli Young Band.

They released their first album in 2002, self-titled "Eli Young Band". In 2005 they released "Level" on Carnival Records and opened shows for Miranda Lambert. In 2011, the Eli Young Band released their fifth single, "Crazy Girl" as the lead single off "Life at Best". It became the band's first platinum-selling digital single, as well as their first No. 1 single, and also was the number one song on that year's Billboard Year-End charts.

The band received three nominations for the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards: Song of the Year, Top Vocal Group of the Year, and Single Record of the Year. On April 1, 2012 the band won the Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year.

I can't believe they are playing at the Rodeo Club. It should be a great show.
