“Break It In” is receiving positive responses in early reviews
The Eli Young Band has officially impacted country radio with their latest single, “Break It In,” via The Valory Music Co. Quickly following fourth career No. 1 “Love Ain’t,” they charge ahead with stellar early reviews. Rolling Stone listed the introspective tune among their 10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now, boasting, “’Break It In’ looks to continue the Texas group’s revived hit streak.” Music Row Magazine elected it as their Disc of the Day and praised, “churning and burning and brilliant. I believe I just heard a fifth No. 1 record for these talented fellows.”
EYB recorded the Benjy Davis, Brandon Day, Daniel Ross and Michael Whitworth-penned “Break It In” under producer Dann Huff. Exceeding 2.8 billion global career streams in total, watch the lyric video as EYB explores life lessons best learned over time. They will continue to bring fresh tracks and fan-favorites from This Is Eli Young Band: Greatest Hits on the road this summer, before hitting arenas and amphitheaters this fall as direct support on Chris Young’s Raised on Country World Tour 2019.
The talented four-piece formed at University of North Texas nearly two decades ago and has since topped the charts with their award-winning smashes. EYB’s successful trajectory features No. 1s – platinum “Drunk Last Night,” 2X platinum “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and 3X platinum “Crazy Girl” – plus a never-before-heard acoustic recording of the latter. The 14-track compilation This Is Eli Young Band: Greatest Hits also includes new songs “Where Were You” and their current Top 20-and-climbing single, penned by Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally under producer Dann Huff. The adjoining music video for “Love Ain’t” follows the emotional journey of military veteran and quadruple amputee Taylor Morris recovering with the support of his wife Danielle by his side.
