The members of Eli Young Band have been through a lot in the 10 years since they first formed the group as college students in Texas. The bond between them is so strong they even hang out when they’re not on the road.

Lead singer Mike Eli says, “We’ve been friends for so long that anytime we can be hanging out, we are.”

It’s especially easy for Mike and his band mates James Young and Jon Jones, who all live very close to one another. There’s only one group that objects to the Eli Young Band boys’ club.

Says Mike, “Our wives are, they’re like, ‘Really? Y’all have to hang out on the road and off the road? That tends to be the issue.”

Eli Young Band’s latest hit, “Even if It Breaks Your Heart,” speaks in part to the group’s 10-year journey to the top. It’s included on their latest album, Life at Best, available now.
