[lastfm]Eli Young Band[/lastfm] is no stranger to the CMA Music Festival, but this year may be the first time they truly get the attention they deserve. We got a few minutes with the guys in Nashville and they told us all about the long process to stardom, and how much they can’t wait to see [lastfm]Tiffany[/lastfm] (they were laughing, but we’re not sure they were joking). Plus EYB has a new album coming up, so that’s something to get excited about!
When was your first CMA Music Festival or Fan Fair?
Six or seven years ago. The nice thing is now, this thing might get published. Six or seven years ago, we couldn’t even find the door.
Who are you most excited to see play at the CMA Music Festival?
Tiffany? I heard she’s here. We’re fans of music, first and foremost, so it’s just mind blowing for us, four guys that started a little band in college, to walk by some of these guys we’ve looked up to for years.
What’s next for you?
We have a new record coming out August 16th. ‘Crazy Girl’ is the first single of the new record, called ‘Life at Best.’
