It's been fun watching the Eli Young Band go from being a band that only Texans get to national country stars. Now, they celebrate the release of their new CD, '10,000 Towns' with an appearance on national TV. Mike, James, Jon and Chris made their way to 'The Today Show' and brought the house down with their new single, 'Dust'.

Before the performance, it was pretty cool that the guys from Denton, Texas were given credit - not only for their three #1 records, Grammy nomination and ACM Award - but also because they "did it the the old-fashioned way", referring to the fact that EYB hit it big through hard work and hitting the road instead of winning a contest.

Next up for the Eli Young Band? Of course, more tour dates. They are crossing the entire USA over the next couple months, including stops in Houston (3/5) and Austin (3/10) in support of '10,000 Towns'. You can order physical copy of the new CD, or download a digital version through the band's official website now.
