Leading into the weekend, all four members of the Eli Young Band dropped by the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte North Carolina, to visit with patients.  While at the hospital the band enjoyed being interviewed by several of the patients themselves in the Ryan Seacrest Studio.

In an effort to give patients something to look forward to and for some, a career path, Ryan Seacrest is committed to building studios at Children’s hospitals across the country for patients to use. “We are grateful for the Eli Young Band taking time on their tour to stop by our Seacrest Studios at the Levine Children’s Hospital to bring some excitement and smiles to patients,” said Meredith Seacrest, Executive Director & COO of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.

“It was incredible to see these kids experience something so cool. Music is an outlet for them as they go through hard times that most of us couldn’t imagine,” said Mike Eli, lead singer for the band. “The studio lets them forget their illness for a little while. We were ecstatic to be part of it.”

Eli Young Band Gives Back With Record Breaking Concert At Ramstein Air Force Base

Eli Young Band recently made a special visit to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany to once again entertain members of the Armed Forces.  For Tech. Sgt. Timothy Covey and his family, a night under the stars with the GRAMMY-nominated musicians was the perfect ending to his tour of duty In Germany. With a Permanent Change of Station scheduled just three days later, Covey, his wife Carol and their three children bid Ramstein Air Force Base a fond farewell by enjoying the concert. They were among the estimated 5,500 fans in attendance during the July 16 concert. The Exchange, Pizza Hut and the 86th Force Support Squadron teamed up to present the show.

“We’re country music fans and also fans of the band, so we’re pretty excited to be here,” Tech. Sgt. Covey said. “Events like these are a great morale booster. It’s great to be able to come out and just relax and not have to worry about work.”

The band performed a set for the Kaiserslautern military community, including their new single “Saltwater Gospel,” along with #1 hits “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Drunk Last Night,” and “Crazy Girl.”

“What a great event and what better way to show the Kaiserslautern military community how much they are appreciated,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange and Pizza Hut are thrilled to play a role in providing the concert for this wonderful community.”

The day before the concert, Eli Young Band took time to meet with members of the military, sign autographs, take pictures and hand out t-shirts. Fans began lining up hours before the event in anticipation of the festivities.

The show marked the third concert the Eli Young Band has performed for the military community recently, in partnership with Pizza Hut. In October 2014, they made a trip to the winning base, Camp Hansen, in Okinawa, Japan with over 7,000 military members and families in attendance. Last March, they took the stage for a show at Fort Benning, GA for more than 4,000 fans.

Eli Young Band Announce New Single “Saltwater Gospel”

Eli Young Band

Eli Young Band gave their fans some much-anticipated news this week, announcing their latest single “Saltwater Gospel” across social media. Marking the band’s first single for The Valory Music Co., the song will ship to radio next week and will be available on iTunes next Friday, June 10. “Saltwater Gospel” marks the band’s first single for The Valory Music Co. and is a follow up to EYB’s three chart-topping hits “Crazy Girl,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and “Drunk Last Night.”

The anthemic hook in “Saltwater Gospel” immediately transports the listener to their favorite beach, where the mystical power of the ocean melts away the troubles of everyday life – while connecting them to their own spirituality.  In less than four minutes, the track has the transformative ability to mirror the uplifting effect of the ocean, the sand and the breeze.  Like the rhythm of the waves, verse-by-verse, the song lifts the listener higher and higher, with its steady pulse and soulful cadence.

“I’m out here by myself, but I know I’m not alone

Yeah I got all the proof I need

and it sure makes me believe

 When I go down and sink my feet in the water

 and I soak up that sun and I watch it set. 

Yeah, I can feel the power of the saltwater gospel

 I’m as close to God as I can get.

Ooooooo, Oooooo, Yeah….”

EYB lead singer Mike Eli noted,

“sometimes you just have that gut feeling  you’ve come across something special. When I heard this song, it moved me. I love that it is about so much more than just saltwater.”

EYB’s producer Ross Copperman and hit-makers Nicolle Galyon and Ashley Gorley penned “Saltwater Gospel,” infusing all of the hallmarks of a smash. The lead single will be featured on their forthcoming – and first – album for The Valory Music Co., which the band is currently in the studio recording.  EYB will debut their new music at select tour dates this summer.

Big Machine Label Group President & CEO Scott Borchetta exclaims,

“The Eli Young Band are back with perhaps the most infectious new song of the summer. Don’t overthink it, just let Saltwater Gospel play and let it wash over you. You will then know that summer has truly arrived.”
