The Eli Young Band, one of the few Texas country bands to break out into the C&W mainstream of late, will play Graham Central Station in Las Cruces at 7 p.m. March 28.
The Denton band, still working last year's contagious "Life at Best" album, has been doing really well of late. "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," the second single from the album, was up for two Grammys earlier this month.
The group recently was nominated for three Academy of Country Music Awards, including Vocal Group of the Year. They'll be handed out April 7.
It's a 21-and-older show.
Tickets are $20 in advance, on sale in LC at the Boot Barn, Horse and Hound and the club, and online at grahamcentralstationlascruces.com.
Also, fellow Texas country group the Casey Donahew Band has lined up a March 20 show at Graham Central Station.
The band, which played El Paso last fall, is touring behind new album "Double Wide Dream."
Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $15 at the same locations.
