Two students, Mike Eli and James Young, were freshman roommates at the University of North Texas. Their guitar playing and songwriting in their freshman dorm were the start of Eli Young Band, which became fully formed when they met other band members Chris Thompson and Jon Jones. Since their self-titled debut album in 2002, the band has produced a number of singles and albums that embody their Texas roots. The band takes modern Country music to a new level as they play their own music and write their own chart-topping songs such as “Love Ain’t” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”.
Eli Young Band has secured itself as one of the top Country groups with numerous awards nominations, including a 2012 Billboard Music nomination for “Top Country Song” and a 2013 Grammy nomination for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance”. In 2012, the band won “Song of the Year” at the Academy of Country Music Awards and “Breakthrough Artist” at the MusicRow Awards.
The Eli Young Band concert promptly begins at 9:00PM on the 3rd Street Stage at the Fremont Street Experience.
