Eli Young Band Committed to Bringing a Little Joy to Military Families

Republic NashvilleThe Eli Young Band is making a point to meet with military families this year while on the road with Kenny Chesney's No Shoes tour.  Those meet-and-greet sessions also include an acoustic performance by the band, and front man Mike Eli says it’s the least they can do for those helping defend our country.

Mike tells Gaithersburg, MD's The Gazette, “I have two brothers in the Marines, and to see what their families have gone through and to be a part of that has been incredibly eye opening.  It’s tough for them.  If my band can do something to bring a little joy to the family that has been through hell and back, by God, we’re going to do it."

Check out for a full list of tour dates.
