I am such a huge fan of Eli Young Band. I think Mike Eli has one of the most unique voices in country music. The band works so well together on stage, and they put on really entertaining show. I am so glad I had the pleasure of seeing these guys, and meeting them last year. In addition to vocals, Mike plays guitar; James Young is on lead guitar and backup vocals; Jon Jones plays bass guitar and backup vocals; and Chris Thompson is on drums.
I recently reviewed a new album by another artist, and I listed a few of the songs from the CD as my favorites. I also said, at that time, “they can’t all be favorites.” I was wrong. I think all of the songs on the new Eli Young Band CD are songs that can be counted among my favorites!
Now all I’m trying to figure out is which one the band needs to release as their next single. I’m leaning toward “The Fight”. I really like “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” too. But when all 14 songs are now favorites of mine, it’s not easy to pick one.
Even If It Breaks Your Heart
Every Other Memory
On My Way
I Love You
My Old Man’s Son
War on a Desperate Man
Say Good Night
How Quickly You Forget
Life at Best
I think all Eli Young fans are going to want this CD in their collection. In fact, all country music fans are probably going to want it, too. It’s a great CD, from a band that I am looking forward to seeing again!
