The inaugural Lost Highway Festival will bring bikers and music lovers together this May.
“We just recorded these songs in January, so it’s a fast turnaround,” lead singer Mike Eli says of the brand-new material on the band’s new EP ‘Turn It On.’
Additional performers include Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Clint Black, Kenny Rogers, Darius Rucker, Dwight Yoakam, Alabama and the Eli Young Band.
Eli Young Band will release their new EP ‘Turn It On’ next Tuesday, but fans can get an early listen a week before the music is available.
“The song was inspired by those that put themselves in harm’s way for the rest of us,” the Eli Young Band said.
Was Willie Nelson right when he sang that “Sad Songs and Waltzes Aren’t Selling This Year”? Is country music now all happy and upbeat?
“I remember we just started with the word ‘dust,’ we wanted to do something with that,” Eli Young Band bassist Jon Jones told Radio.com about the song. Watch the new music video.
“Dust” was shot on a homemade dirt track that was created especially for this project. “It’s taken a massive amount of people to make this happen but it’s pretty exciting,” director Peter Zavadil said in a behind-the-scenes video.
These new additions will join such previously announced performers as Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, George Strait and Lady Antebellum.
While the Eli Young Band may not have hit exactly the number of locales noted in the title of their most recent album, 10,000 Towns, chances are they’re getting close.
“It was a fun record to make,” said lead singer Mike Eli of the band’s latest studio album “10,000 Towns,” which hit stores this week. “But we also knew it was an incredibly important record for our career.”
“It felt like that Friday night anthem that our band has never really had and this song accomplishes that without being cliché,” Mike Eli said.
“If anybody’s been in a relationship for a long time they’ve all been through ‘Miss You.’ It’s a song about being in love and everything going great but being too busy to show love.”
“A lot of times when people talk about the other No. 1s I’ve had, they’re always like, ‘Man, stop giving away all of your hits!'”
