The guys in Eli Young Band all have their own favorite music and influences, but one band they all agree is a band they admire and respect is the Zac Brown Band.  Jon says, “They’ve opened so many doors for bands in country music which I think is great and hopefully we can do the same for other acts. [We] had a chance to play with them and they’re not only great musicians but also great people.” 

Mike agrees and he says one thing they love about Zac Brown Band is that “they really think out of the box musically, and I think that we’ve always tried to be a band that we don’t try to just stay middle of the road. We really try to make music that is impactful and is kind of hitting on new territory and I think that Zac Brown Band being as much of a success as they have as of recently, they really have continued opening doors for bands like us.” 

Eli Young Band is currently celebrating their top five song “Crazy Girl” out on the Country & Cold Cans Tour with Dierks Bentley and Jerrod Niemann.
