The Song Remembers When: Eli Young Band – “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”

We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…


In 2012, the Eli Young Band had their second number one with “Even if It Breaks Your Heart.” The song was written by Eric Paslay and Will Hoge in 2009.

Mike Eli said that when they were talking about recording their Life At Best album, the song came up.  He said that it was something he really just couldn’t get out of his head. Songwriter Eric Paslay said that it was musicians and entertainers who really seemed to identify with this song because it tells the story of what an artist goes through.

Well, that song was the second consecutive number one for the band, and it garnered nominations from the CMAs, the ACMs, and the Grammys.

So, this week’s The Song Remembers When is the Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart.”
