After more than a decade of non-stop hard work to reach the levels of success they’re seeing now, Eli Young Band is slowing down. But they’re not stopping by any means. “We feel as if we worked hard to open some doors and this isn’t the time to not walk through them,” Mike Eli said.
“Starting out as a band we’d be on the road 200-plus dates a year,” James Young said. “So, we’ve kind of slowed things down a little bit and we get to go home, where afforded to go home now. We just go hop on the airplane, which is nice instead of staying out on the bus all the time.”
Even though they’ve been touring the country for years, the band is still enjoying it. “It continues to be more and more fun, which makes it easy to want to…stay out on the road and just get in front of awesome crowds every night,” Jon Jones said. “I guess, inherently (it) pushes us to want to continue.”
Eli Young Band just wrapped up the Changed Tour with Rascal Flatts. They will continue headlining their own dates and promoting their new single, “Say Goodnight,” before taking a break for the holidays.
