So it looks like the Eli Young Band will have a new single out next month. We’ll have that one on here as soon as it’s released. It looks like that single will be off a brand new album. The band had two big hits off their last album, but there were some really good album cuts on it including 10,000 Towns, which I’ve listened to a lot the last year.
The band also released a video for another album cut, Prayer For The Road. So check that one out.
I wanted to look at another album cut. This is another good one. This band is really coming into their own.
Angel Like You – Eli Young Band
The thing that’s kind of tough in today’s music world is that bands and artists really don’t have time to grow and mature on labels like they used to. It could be in the past that artists would get groomed for a few years by industry veterans. The kind of learn the ropes. They release a few albums and learn what fans want.
Now if you don’t hit it off big right from the start you really don’t get much of a chance. But I think the Eli Young Band has been able to grow and find their voice in country music. They’re unique and they seem to keep getting better.
This song won’t be a single, but I think it showcases their style really well. They’re good at a lot of different songs, but this one is a really meaningful ballad. It’s simple, but emotional and I bet a lot of people liked it when they heard it.
