Eli Young Band Cracks Billboard Hot Country Top
If frosted tips and graphic tees ain't country, I don't know what is.
According to a press release from the Eli Young Band, the Denton country group's single "Always The Love Songs" has made it to
#10 #11 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart with an increase of 1.7 million impressions for a total of 28 million country radio impressions.
That's an increase of two chart positions from the most current standings listed at Billboard.com, where the song appears at #12 after an impressive 36 weeks on the chart--10 weeks longer than any other song in the Top 25.
In other Eli Young news, the band is featured in the current issue of American Songwriter, appear on GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown and have consistently beat off other CMT artists like Kid Rock, Miley Cyrus and Rascal Flatts--a trio of authentic country superstars if there ever was one--on the network's viewer-voted Power Picks.
Update: The band's publicist just sent a correction of her original press release. Seems the single actually makes #10 on the Radio and Records Country chart, and only reaches as high as #11 on Billboard's chart. "Since yesterday, I've been told that the song is at #10 on the RADIO charts today and #11 on Billboard so I wanted to clarify that since I told you 'Billboard' yesterday," she writes in an e-mail. "Having 2 different rankings and 2 charts can get confusing and that is what has happened in this case. ... our press release should have read #10 on the radio charts (R&R)."
