No. 55: Eli Young Band, ‘Crazy Girl’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
Eli Young Band scored their major career breakthrough with ‘Crazy Girl,’ the first single from their second major label album ‘Life at Best.’ Written by Liz Rose and a then-little-known artist named Lee Brice, the song’s laidback cool and strong melody hooked fans, driving the track to No. 1, helping it win Song of the Year at the 2012 ACM Awards and bringing it in at No. 55 in this collection of the Top 100 Country Love Songs ever.
Lyrically, the song is about a man reassuring his woman that despite whatever crazy moments she has, he’s not leaving. “Crazy girl, don’t you know that I love you / And I wouldn’t dream of going nowhere / Silly woman, come here let me hold you / Have I shown you lately I love you like crazy, girl.”
