The Eli Young Band formed in Denton, Texas in 2000. The members of the band met each other while they were all students at North Texas University. Mike Eli and James Young were paired together as dormmates their freshman year of college.  They began playing guitar together, eventually began writing songs, and forming the acoustic duo Eli & Young. Chris Thompson and Jon Jones joined them later on and they became the Eli Young Band, and the rest is history.
