Eli Young Band Salute U.S. Soldiers for Veterans Day
The Eli Young Band released a video saluting U.S. Soldiers for Veterans Day and highlighting their recent performances across several bases. The band entertained troops at Autec Navy Base in the Bahamas, Thule Air Base in Greenland and Camp Humphreys in South Korea.
"It is always an honor to have the opportunity to play for the troops," singer Mike Eli says in a press release. "It's incredibly humbling when they thank us for bringing a little piece of home to them when we should be the ones thanking them. The sacrifice that these men, women and families make is unbelievable. This behind-the-scenes content is just a small way to say thank you as these extraordinary men and women support us overseas."
The Eli Young Band has made entertaining troops a central part of their mission for much of their career. The band also recently performed during iHeartCountry's One Night For Our Military concert in Los Angeles, joining Brantley Gilbert, Ben Rue and host Bobby Bones.That performance aired on radio waves across the country on Nov. 11 in honor of Veterans Day.
Each member of the Texas-based four-piece band has immediate family who has served or is currently serving in the military. In May, the Eli Young Band teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Project on their video for "Love Ain't," which features the heartwarming real life story of veteran and quadruple amputee Taylor Morris and his wife Danielle.
