It’s a crazy-good story. The Eli Young Band-four musicians who met during their college days in Texas-is now 11 years into a career built on touring without a single lineup change. That dedication is paying off big-time as the band enjoys a crazy new level of success. They sell a crazy amount of tickets. Get a crazy amount of airplay. And are selling a crazy amount of downloads-EYB received their first platinum record for “Crazy Girl” and have sold over 1.5million downloads of the track.
The ACM nominated DUO Love and Theft’s rollicking first single “Angel Eyes”-which scored the twosome their first CMT Music Awards nomination for Duo Video of the Year-brought to mind Elvis Presley’s “(You’re the) Devil in Disguise.” Their self-titled 2012 album “Love and Theft” was released on RCA records and the first single “Runnin Out of Air” is climbing the country singles charts.
