Bassist Jon Jones Feelings on the Video’s Story
Eli Young Band (EYB) teamed up with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) for their new music video “Love Ain’t.” The video shines a light on the sacrifices couples like Military veteran Taylor Morris and his wife Danielle face daily. “It’s both heartbreaking and incredibly inspiring to see their bond yet know so many people have stories just like theirs", said bassist Jon Jones.
Why Does Eli Young Band Support Wounded Warrior Project?
The choice to partner with WWP was a personal one for Eli Young Band. All four band members have family members that are part of the military, so they recognize the often-unspoken truth that warriors come back from deployment and not only have to live completely differently, but their support systems do as well.
We Love Sharing Inspirational Stories Like This
Since 2003, WWP has been meeting the growing needs of warriors, their families, and caregivers – helping them achieve their highest ambition. “Life is a journey and each warrior’s steps are different,” explained WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (ret) Mike Linnington. “We are hopeful sharing stories like this and the 480,000 servicemen and women physically injured in recent military conflicts, will guarantee there are resources to create a more positive future they deserve to have. With the support of the Eli Young Band, we give a voice to the needs of our warriors as they begin the journey to recovery.”
