Multi-Platinum hitmakers Eli Young Band were surprised with a Pandora Billionaire Plaque following their Grand Ole Opry performance on February 22. The moment commemorates over 2 billion streams on the platform, and the band has been added to Pandora’s Country Billionaires Radio in celebration of the honor. “Sometimes these moments sneak up on you and refill the gas tank,” reflected lead singer Mike Eli in response to the surprise presentation. “We love to play music and when something like this comes along and reminds you that people are listening, it just feels so good. The first and last time someone will call us billionaires!” Last week, the musical band of brothers delivered new single “Love Talking” to Country radio, earning early praise from American Songwriter for its “silky smooth” delivery showcasing “the fruits of the band’s recent creative explosion.” All Access concurred, “In this two minute and 50 second smash, lead singer Mike Eli’s voice embraces listeners like a warm hug,” with MusicRow remarking that “the echo gives the sound some extra juice, and the band is as proficient as ever.” Billboard also named the song among the best of the week upon its release, noting that “this ultra-romantic new release from the group swirls with an irresistible melody and propulsive rhythm.”

Love Talking” is the lead single off the band’s forthcoming sixth studio album, planned for release later this year via The Valory Music Co. Fans will have a chance to see the new single performed live, along with the band’s multi-decade catalog of chart-topping hits, as EYB returns to the road for their 51-city Love Talking Tour.
