Eli Young Band.

Rising star group Eli Young Band were the first artists to receive the brand new CMA Medallion this week. The new Olympics-styled medal replaces the former CMA plaque for writing or performing a number one country song, and was awarded to the group in celebration of their newest chart topper “Even If It Breaks Your Heart.” The party was a standing room only event at the Country Music Association offices on Music Row as supporters and friends of the group overwhelmingly came out to share the love.

Yesterday’s presentation of the new CMA medals was made by BMI’s Jody Williams, ASCAP’s Mike Sistad, Cal IV Entertainment’s Danielle Hill, Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta and Jimmy Harnen, Avenue Bank’s Ron Cox, CMA’s Brandi Simms and CRS’ Bill Mayne.

“Thank you for believing in us and believing in this song,” said Mike Eli. “We fell in love with the song not because we saw, or had any foresight, or thought it was a No. 1. We just loved this song.”

The song was especially personal to writers Eric Paslay and Will Hoge. Will spoke about writing the song together:

“It was so personal for Ericand I, we thought it would never connect because it was so personal. Eli Young took it and truly made it an anthem.”

Congratulations to Eli Young Band! Check out the picture below of the group getting their medals:

 “The message that is in ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart’ lives in every one us, said Jimmy Harnen, President of Republic Nashville. He added, “we all have dreams that we strive to achieve regardless of how challenging the journey. In many respects this song is reflective of EYB’s drive, hard work and incredible talent to be where they are today! Back-to-back #1 singles with ‘Crazy Girl’ and ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart,’ sold out shows, platinum and gold records and millions of fans. I have said it before and I will say it again, this could not happen to a nicer or more deserving group of people.”
Jon Jones (bass player for EYB) said, “It means the world to us to have back to back number ones.” He added, “this one is especially meaningful to us because the song resonated with us like nothing before. The song is our story and that it has been embraced by country fans and country radio is proof that dreams really do come true.“

Eli Young Band Baby News!

Eli Young Band.

Congratulations to Eli Young Band lead singer Mike Eli! According to People magazine, he’s expecting a baby with wife Kacey, who are celebrating their second anniversary next week. The pair found out the good news on New Years Day, and they’re expecting their baby daughter on August 2nd. Mike is taking his new role very seriously, already hitting the baby books hard to find out everything he needs to know:

“She and her mom got me a couple books that I am reading, and it can be a little overwhelming,” he admits. “I recommend reading them for the basics and what to expect during pregnancy, but they can’t teach you to be a good dad and a good partner. That’s up to me to figure out.”

Mike and his band will be heading to Las Vegas this weekend for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The group is up for three ACM awards including Vocal Group of the Year. See if they take any of the three home when it airs live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 8 pm EST on CBS.
