Eli Young Band scored its fourth No. 1 single with “Love Ain’t.” The single has hit the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.
The song was co-written by Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley, and Shane McAnally, and is the band’s first No. 1 single since “Drunk Last Night” topped the charts more than five years ago in December 2013.
The video for “Love Ain’t” follows the love story of Taylor Morris—an explosive ordnance disposal technician with the Navy who became a quadruple amputee after an explosion in Afghanistan in 2012—and his girlfriend of more than a decade, Danielle. The clip has more than 6 million views on YouTube and features personal videos of Taylor’s rehab, his 2013 homecoming in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and marriage to Danielle.
