Dan + Shay announced a new 2021 Arena Tour with more than 30 dates.

“thank you to our fans for being so patient while we worked through the rescheduling of the (arena) tour. we’re absolutely crushed that it wasn’t able to happen this year, but your safety is more important to us than anything, so we made the difficult decision to move the tour to 2021,” said Dan + Shay via Instagram. “even though it seems like an eternity, the new year will be here before we know it, and we promise it will be worth the wait.  we miss you all so much (seriously, more than you even know), and hope that you’re staying well in the meantime. all tickets for the original shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates. and it hurts our hearts to say this, but unfortunately, some of the shows were not able to be rescheduled. we tried everything in our power to include as many as we possibly could, but the global pandemic has left our industry fighting an uphill battle, especially when it comes to logistics. if your show is one that has been canceled, or if you are unable to attend a rescheduled date, you can get a refund at your point of purchase. details aside, just know that we care about every single one of you, and are grateful, as always, for your continued support. it’s been a rollercoaster of a year, but hopefully we’ll become better because of it.  much love to all, and see you on the road in 2021.”

Dan + Shay kicked off their 2020 Arena Tour with back-to-back shows in Nashville on March 6 and 7, followed by a stop in Columbus, Ohio, on March 8. However, the duo was forced to cancel the remaining 30-plus dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
