Plastic

Album: Turn It On (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Mike Eli talking of a woman's natural beauty as he croons, "Girl, there ain't nothing plastic about you." The Eli Young Band vocalist commented to Radio.com: "As a songwriter you want to be a part of songs that you feel tread new territory, and I was really happy with the outcome of that song and being able to say what it says in the way it did. I think it could have been one of those songs that could go the other way, and I was really proud of a lot of those lyrics."
