Eli Young Band Rock Out With ‘Dust’ on ‘Letterman’ [Watch]

Grammy-nominated country rockers Eli Young Band hit up ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ on Tuesday night (July 22), bringing with them their latest rising single, ‘Dust.’

Frontman Mike Eli, guitarist James Young, bassist Jon Jones and drummer Chris Thompson were rock solid throughout the performance. They made the mid-tempo track exciting for a live performance, making fans of anyone in the audience who didn’t know them already.

‘Dust’ is from the band’s ’10,000 Towns’ record, which already has a No. 1 single in ‘Drunk Last Night.’ The EYB guys looked comfortable and confident onstage — a visual representation of their music. Eli sported a short-sleeved denim shirt, showing off his tattoos, while Young made things festive with a straw cowboy hat atop his head.

At the end of their set, Letterman dubbed the performance “fantastic” before asking Thompson a couple of random questions about his drum kit. Currently, EYB are on rocking a slew of festivals and fairs,  kicking up dust on the stage and off before they join Jake Owen‘s Days of Gold Tour for a number of select dates.
