Mike Eli (vocals, guitar), James Young (guitar), Jon Jones (bass guitar), and Chris Thompson (drums) are the four guys behind the Eli Young Band who met at the University of North Texas. Their classic country music was first released in a self-titled debut album in 2002. Although they had already released two albums, they didn’t gain much mainstream attention until their third album, Jet Black & Jealous (2008), because they finally had a major record label. The album peaked at #5 on the US Country chart and #30 overall. Life at Best (2011) has been their most successful album to date. It peaked at #3 on the Country chart and #6 overall. Their mainstream popularity and critical acclaim has led them to get Academy of Country Music Awards and make an appearance on both ABC’s “The Bachelor” and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
