We have a lot of great country music concerts coming to Evansville in 2023. Alabama and Koe Wetzel just tore the house down in Evansville in March. Coming up this year, we will have Kane Brown, Walker Hayes, Kenny Chesney, Jelly Roll, and Luke Bryan, all of which are set to play at the Ford Center this year. We also have Kip Moore coming to the Victory Theatre in 2023 as well. On top of all those shows coming to Evansville, we have yet another concert announcement to make!

The Eli Young Band coming to Evansville

Milti-platinum recording artists, The Eli Young Band, will be coming to the Victory Theatre on July 14th. The Eli Young Band consists of  Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones, and Chris Thompson. Nobody in the band is named Eli Young. It's just a mix of Mike Eli and James Young's names. A lot of people don't realize that, but when they hear the band's music, they know exactly who they are. The Eli Young Band broke onto the scene in 2007 with their debut single,  "When It Rains", and then followed that up with "Always the Love Songs" in 2008.

The band also found success with smash hits such as "Love Ain't," "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," "Say Goodnight," "Crazy Girl," and "Drunk Last Night," just to name a few.

Throughout the years, the Eli Young Band has earned Billboard's #1 ​Country Song of the Year​ and ACM Awards ​Song of the Year. They have also earned multiple nominations from GRAMMY, CMA, CMT, ACA, and Teen Choice Awards.
