Eli Young Band’s Mike Eli and Jon Jones are both fathers to young children. Despite the new additions to the band’s family, they haven’t started turning out a bunch of songs about their kids for their next album.

“My daughter, when we got home from the hospital I actually wrote her a lullaby,” Mike said. “It’s not on an album. So that’s fun ‘cause I got to record a little guitar vocal of the lullaby that we sing to her.”

Mike’s baby girl is already well-versed in her daddy’s music. “My wife had these Belly Buds that she would play our music through when she was pregnant, and so anytime I’d start singing one of our songs or something, my daughter’s eyes kinda go that way like she knows it and she hasn’t quite put it together,” he said. “It’s pretty fun.”

The band just celebrated their latest No. 1 with “Drunk Last Night,” just in time for Christmas. They are planning to release a new album early this year.
