The Eli Young Band has attracted a crowd in Fayetteville before, like last September at the Arkansas Music Pavilion.

That was before the band had a No. 1 country hit to their credit, a feat they achieved with the song “Crazy Girl.”

It should come as no surprise, then, that the band promptly sold out their Wednesday (Feb. 15) appearance at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville.

I chatted with the band’s drummer, Chris Thompson, about the sudden surge of success and what his band has in mind for topping the success of “Crazy Girl,” which also earned the quartet from Texas an Academy of Country Music award nomination for Song of the Year.

Read Thompson’s thoughts in a story published Friday in What’s Up!, our arts and entertainment guide. [Note: Subscriber content]

The show begins at 9 p.m. and is sold out.
