Eli Young Band’s hot new single, ‘Crazy Girl,’ has only been spinning on country radio for a few weeks, and has been available for download for less than 24 hours — but today, the song grabbed the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Country chart and sits proudly at No. 22 overall.

“The song just came out and there’s already this huge response. We are so very lucky to have fans at country radio that are making it happen for us!” EYB frontman Mike Eli tells Taste of Country exclusively. “Thank you to everyone out there who is supporting this song.”

The band shared updates via Twitter as the song climbed from No. 7 to No. 1 in a matter of hours. “Crazy Girl’ is NUMBER 1 on iTunes! #WINNING! Do you guys think we can keep it at #1 this week?” the band tweeted, including a photo of ‘Crazy Girl’ in the No. 1 country single slot.

So far, 2011 has been good to Eli Young Band. The funny music video for the ‘Crazy Girl’ love song sat pretty as No. 1 on CMT during Valentine’s Day week.

Eli Young Band’s forthcoming fourth studio album is slated for release later this year.
