IOWA WILD ANNOUNCES ELI YOUNG BAND AS POST-GAME CONCERT11/20/2019
Iowa Wild, in conjunction with Eli Young Band, announced today the award-winning band will play a concert following the Wild’s Feb. 15 contest against the San Diego Gulls. The post-game concert is presented by Principal.
“We strive to bring major artists for our post-game concerts, and Eli Young Band is near the top of that list,” said Allie Brown, Senior Director of Marketing and Creative Services with Iowa. “We are excited to have Eli Young Band playing our game on Feb. 15. They’re known for putting on great concerts and we can’t wait to share that experience with our fans.”
Eli Young Band has toured with massive artists such as Jason Aldean, Dave Matthews Band, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker and more, and have more than held their own on the stage. The band has sold out shows across the country as headliners and has appeared on TV shows such as TODAY, Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Their success has come due to their meticulous dedication to crafting songs with passion; the result being hit after hit. Eli Young Band went platinum with four singles, including three that have gone multi-platinum. Their chart-topping hits include “Drunk Last Night” (platinum), “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (double platinum) and “Crazy Girl” (triple platinum). ‘Crazy Girl” was Billboard’s No. 1 Country Song of 2011 and was also named the 2012 ACM Song of the Year.
Eli Young Band’s single, “Love Ain’t” follows the story of Iowa native Taylor Morris. In 2012, Morris was serving in Afghanistan when an explosion caused him to become a quadruple amputee. His girlfriend dropped everything to take care of him and was with him every step of his rehabilitation process. Inspired by their struggle and selfless love throughout, the band wrote the song and teamed up with Wounded Warrior Project to shine a light on just how much those who serve and their families sacrifice and what they battle through after coming home.
