Garth Brooks breaks a Steel City record
NUMBER ONE SINGLE: Eli Young Band scored its fourth No. 1 single as “Love Ain’t” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week. The emotionally charged tune, which was penned by Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, 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, who remained by Taylor’s side. The inspiring clip, which has more than 6 million views on YouTube, features personal videos of Taylor’s rehab, his 2013 homecoming in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and marriage to Danielle.
