The musical band of brothers – Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones and Chris Thompson – play their own instruments, write their own songs and cling fast to their Texas roots. The trailblazing group has always been unique in modern Country music and have come a long way since their formation in 2000 at the University of North Texas.
While selling out venues nationwide as a headliner, EYB has toured with Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Darius Rucker and Dave Matthews Band. In 2020, they performed at Globe Life Stadium to kick off the four-night Concert in Your Car Series, an outdoor drive-up live concert in a socially distant environment, and have since returned to playing traditional live shows on their Love Talking Tour, currently underway.
EYB has amassed 14 Billboard charting singles, including four No. 1 hits via 3x Platinum “Crazy Girl,” 2x Platinum “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” and Platinum “Love Ain’t” and “Drunk Last Night.”
The band has also garnered recognition with Billboard’s No. 1 Country Song of the Year and ACM Song of the Year, in addition to GRAMMY, CMA, CMT, ACA and Teen Choice Award nominations throughout their impressive career.
EYB’s national television appearances include TODAY, Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Fox & Friends.
If you like country music and you're on any social media app, you've probably seen Cooper Alan on your screen in the past two years. The up-and-coming country star has independently built a fanbase of over 10 million followers and has earned over 100 million streams on his music. Originally from Winston Salem, NC, he spent his high school and college years playing bars, college campuses, and Honky Tonks all acrross the Carolinas. He and his band became the "go to" for great music and a high energy, all night throwdown performance.
After graduation, Cooper packed up his guitar and moved to Nashville as fast as he could, where he had the incredible luck of meeting his songwriter/producer Victoria Shaw who signed him within weeks to a publishing deal. He is fortunate and proud to have the opportunity to write songs with people like Rivers Rutherford, Seth Mosley, Matt Nolen, Kent Blazy, Desmond Child, Jeffrey Steele, and Victoria Shaw.
His hit singles include "New Normal", "Tough Ones", "Colt 45 (Country Remix)", "Cant Dance", and many more. His songs have reached #1 on iTunes Charts multiple times. In 2021, Cooper started his own record label (Cooped Up Records) and began to translate his social media audience into killer live shows, selling out venues all across the country. Because of his streaming and live touring success, he was named a "Next Big Thing" artist by Music Row Magazine.
