Watch Dan+Shay’s “Today” Show Performance of “When I Pray for You” From Upcoming Movie, “The Shack”

Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan+Shay stopped by the Today show (March 1) to perform their new song, “When I Pray for You,” which is featured on the The Shack soundtrack.

“Dan and I got to screen this movie, The Shack, and it was incredible,” says Shay, when asked about the inspiration behind the song. “We flew out to L.A. and got to check out the movie, and it was one of those times in our lives where a lot of things were changing—Dan had just recently got engaged and I was about to have my kid. So we watched the movie and sat down to write this with a couple other fathers. And it was just this moment where we were kinda all able to put our stories together. So it was an amazing thing.”

The Shack opens nationwide on March 3, and the soundtracks features songs from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, Brett Eldredge and more.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
