Eli Young Band Scores First No. 1 Single in More Than 5 Years With “Love Ain’t”

Eli Young Band scored its fourth No. 1 single as “Love Ain’t” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

The emotionally charged tune, which was penned by Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley, and Shane McAnally, is the band’s first No. 1 single since “Drunk Last Night” topped the charts more than five years ago in December 2013.

“Getting back here to the top again is a blessing that both country music fans and country radio have given us,” says EYB’s frontman Mike Eli. “We do not take this for granted. It’s a blessing that carries on to our families and our teams that have been behind us every single step of the way. We humbly thank you all for making this happen for us.”

The video for “Love Ain’t” follows the love story of Taylor Morris—an explosive ordnance disposal technician with the Navy who became a quadruple amputee after an explosion in Afghanistan in 2012—and his girlfriend of more than a decade, Danielle, who remained by Taylor’s side. The inspiring clip, which has more than 6 million views on YouTube, features personal videos of Taylor’s rehab, his 2013 homecoming in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and marriage to Danielle.
