Over the past few years, the Eli Young Band has steadily established themselves as one of the most dependable acts in the country format.  The band returns today with the release of a brand new single, “Drunk Last Night.” The band posted a letter to their fans on their website two weeks ago, promoting the upcoming release:

Hey everyone, 

Guess what?? We have new music! The wait is over!



Before we get to it, the four of us are here to say we thank you thank you thank you for buying music, coming to shows, watching the videos, telling your friends about us, and generally just digging what we do.



This will never be taken for granted. #1 songs, award nominations, award wins, sold out shows: none of it happens without you guys. We love you for it. And you are the reason we do it.



So…after all your patience for new music, here we go! 



The first song is called "Drunk Last Night".



It will be available JUNE 25. But in the meantime, here's a taste. Preview "Drunk Last Night" below. 

Love you guys. Lets keep having fun. Hope we can see ya and hang soon.

-Mike, Jon, Chris, and James

The single, the first from their upcoming Republic Nashville album, is available on iTunes today.
 
Two of the band’s previous singles, “Crazy Girl,” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” topped the Billboard Country Songs chart. The band is currently on the “No Shoes Nation” tour alongside Kenny Chesney, Kacey Musgraves, and Eric Church. The tour stops in St. Louis Thursday night, Cincinnati on Friday, and Columbus on Saturday.
