Eli Young Band Has Easier Time Filling Albums


(Nashville, TN) -- Eli Young Band's Jon Jones says it was easier for the group to find material for their latest album. The country star explains that while they worked on "10,000 Towns," they noticed an increase in both their own creative output and the quality of material they were offered.


Jon adds that receiving top-shelf songs also motivated him and his bandmates in their own songwriting. The bassist says they knew they had to rise to the challenge, and pen material that matched or surpassed the songs they were getting from others, if they wanted to include their own work on the disc. Band members co-wrote six of the eleven songs on "10,000 Towns," including their current single. Jon and guitarist James Young wrote "Dust" with Kyle Jacobs and Josh Osborne.
