Eli Young Band Score First No. 1 Single in Canada
Hot on the heels of their previous hit single, ‘Crazy Girl,’ going gold, Eli Young Band are now moving on to celebrate another hit, which has topped the Canadian country singles chart. ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart’ has become the band’s first No. 1 north of the U.S. border, and is also their second consecutive chart-topper in the States as of this week.
The new tune, penned by Will Hoge and Eric Paslay, is also a gold-certified hit for the Texas-based band, but it is quickly nearing platinum certification. And the group show no signs of slowing down their progress.
With a register of chart-toppers in hand, Eli Young Band are gearing up for the Teen Choice Awards on FOX this weekend. The band is nominated in three categories — Choice Country Song, Choice Country Group and Choice Breakout Group.
Should EYB take home any trophies at the Teen Choice Awards, they will sit them next to their previously won Academy of Country Music Award, which they garnered for Song of the Year for ‘Crazy Girl.’
