Country’s hot new duo Dan+Shay release their new self-titled album to fans today.
With athletic vocals and a knack for writing expressive songs with strong melodies that resonate with fans, CMT Music Award nominees Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) stand out as one of the leading artists in American country music.
Their flourishing career is the foundation of their self-titled album.
“Our first two albums helped us build an incredible and super loyal fan base, so we knew it was our responsibility to them to put out the best music we could on this record,” said the duo. “Most importantly, we wanted to deliver a project that would satisfy the people who got us where we are in the first place. Where we are musically and in our personal lives is different than where we were when this all started, which makes this album unique while still being true to who we are.”
The accolades for the first two albums speak for themselves: the Gold-certified Where It All Began, which featured the Platinum-certified 19 You + Me as well as the US Gold-certified No. 1 hit Nothin’ Like You, made them the first new country duo in Soundscan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on the US Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. Their acclaimed second album Obsessed earned award nominations, set sales milestones and produced two more No. 1 songs with the Platinum-certified From the Ground Up and Gold-certified How Not To.
Smyers co-produced the album with long-time collaborator and WMN executive Scott Hendricks (Alan Jackson, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton).
Complementing their signature infectious grooves, Dan + Shay continue to connect with their audience lyrically via the theme of love – finding it, living it, and sometimes losing it.
“Speechless” was inspired by the moment we first saw our beautiful brides walking down the aisle on our wedding days,” said Mooney. “Our genuine reaction was perfectly captured on film, and we wanted to share it with our fans by accompanying this special song with a special video.”
In addition to Tequila and Speechless, Dan + Shay have released All To Myself to tremendous fan response, with the song earning over one million streams in its first week. It was included on Apple Music’s “Best of the Week” playlists in 16 different countries and has been featured on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, US Viral 50, Canada Viral 50, New Music Friday and Singled Out playlists.
