It’s official: people are going mad for Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl.” The Republic Nashville group’s breakout hit single has now been certified Platinum by the RIAA for download sales exceeding 1 million. It also recently hit No. 3 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart, and is sitting pretty at No. 2 on both Billboard/MB monitored charts.
The video for “Crazy Girl” has amassed an impressive 6 million views so far on YouTube, and the band is scheduled to perform the song Thursday, Nov. 3 on Late Show With David Letterman. Following their television appearance, EYB will rejoin their opening slot on Dierks Bentley’s fall tour. They are also currently nominated for an American Country Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
“The saying be careful what you wish for because you just might get it, is really coming true this year for us,” said James Young. “Having a platinum single is one of the things we’ve always dreamed about. Thank you to the fans and country radio for allowing us to do what we love night after night, and for truly making our dreams come true.”
