In 2003, longtime friends Chris Mills and Cris Womack shared an apartment in Lewisville, TX. Like so many other musicians, the two starting playing and writing songs for fun. Their creativity turned into serious business as they began playing venues in the Denton area. Trying to think of a band name, Mills and Womack ended up choosing Eleven Dollars, "since that's all we thought we would make."
In addition to their albums, the music of Eleven Dollars has been featured in the independent films, "After School Special" ("Lauren's Song") and "In Eternity" ("You," "Goodnight and Goodbye"). With multiple tours lined up for the summer and the talents of multiple booking agents, Eleven Dollars is geared toward becoming the next big music attraction.
