Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl” has been certified Gold by the RIAA for sales of over 500,000 downloads. The band has sold nearly 600,000 copies of the song through digital retailers. It is the first Gold single for the band and the lead single from their debut album for Republic Nashville, Life At Best, due out August 16.

“Gold rocks!” said drummer Chris Thompson. “You grow up hearing about artists going gold and dream of what it would be like. Gold has always been such a measure of success.” Lead singer Mike Eli echoes the sentiment. “It’s pretty cool that the single went gold before the record even came out,” he said.

“This is an amazing accomplishment that sends one message loud and clear – Country music fans love the Eli Young Band and “Crazy Girl!” Jimmy Harnen, president of Republic Nashville, said. “Everyone at Republic Nashville could not be happier or more excited and we all look forward to the release of the debut album on August 16. Fans are going to love this album.”

“Crazy Girl,” co-written by Lee Brice and Liz Rose, has reached the Top 20 on the country charts. Watch the video HERE.
