Eli Young Band released an emotionally charged video for their new single, “Love Ain’t.”
The new clip 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 features personal videos of Taylor’s rehab, his 2013 homecoming in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and marriage to Danielle.
“We first learned about Taylor and Danielle a couple of years ago, and there is no doubt their story speaks to what love is,” says EYB frontman Mike Eli. “When thinking about their story and the deeper meaning in this song—how important love is and to know what love ain’t—we knew the video should reflect that. [Band members] James, Chris, Jon and I all have family members who are part of the military so we know there are more couples struggling every day and how quickly lives are changed.”
Eli Young Band teamed with Wounded Warrior Project for the video to help bring to light the growing needs of servicemen and women, their families and caregivers. You can help support Wounded Warriors by making a donation today.
