It’s been two straight number one singles for the Eli Young Band. That’s a pretty incredible run in today’s country music world. It’s hard for new acts to get a second chance, but the guys changed labels and are now on one of the biggest rolls in country. Here is what I think their next single should be…
Skeletons – Eli Young Band
It’s difficult to choose singles in the country game. I would say that 75% of the time I’m wrong. The last time I think I was right was when Jason Aldean released Tattoos On This Town. Anyway, the Eli Young Band is currently on one of the hottest rolls in country music and it’s time for their next single.
Skeletons is perhaps my favorite song off their latest record. It’s got a great melody and hook. The lyrics are about all the secrets we have in our closet. We live our lives with these skeletons in the closest and in some ways we always wonder if they’ll surface and blow our cover. If you say you don’t have any skeletons you’re probably lying. Something we all seem to do is give away a little bit when really there is more under the surface.
I don’t know if there has ever been a song about this topic released before. I’m sure there has been, but the Eli Young Band is bringing a new sound to the mix. I think the melody is strong and it could continue their run on the top of the charts.
Recently I was able to see these guys in concert. They sounded great and the crowd was loving it. I couldn’t tell if people were loving this song during the show, but I was singing along in the back with the lyrics. I just think it’s an interesting song with a catchy melody.
What do you think the next single will be?
