Watch Dan + Shay’s New Acoustic Performance of “I Should Probably Go to Bed”

Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay shared a new performance video of their current single, “I Should Probably Go to Bed.”

Dan traded in his piano for an acoustic guitar as Shay provided lead vocals in the clip that was recorded at Dan’s farm in the Nashville area.

Penned by Dan, Shay, Sean Douglas and Jason Evigan, “I Should Probably Go to Bed” was produced entirely by Dan, who performed and recorded every instrument at his home studio in Nashville. The single is currently No. 15 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 11 weeks.

“We’re so excited about our brand-new single,” says Dan. “We wrote part of this song in Los Angeles during Grammy week, but finished it at my house, on my piano, kind of by accident. Shay had come over to record vocals on another song that we had written. We took a break, went downstairs, started singing this song, and realized this song needs a big ending. So we really went for it. Shay delivered one of my favorite vocal performances of all time. We’re so proud that this is our new single.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
