Dan + Shay Go Into The Grammy’s With Justin Bieber In the Same Boat

Dan + Shay Go Into The Grammy’s With Justin Bieber In the Same Boat

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, March 14th — and Dan + Shay are nominated in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category with Justin Bieber for their smash-hit “10,000 Hours.”

Talking about the track, Dan Smyers says, “10,000 Hours’ is about spending a lifetime learning and loving your significant other. This song is extra special to Shay and I because we wrote it about our beautiful wives, Abby and Hannah, and it was fun to collaborate with our good buddy Justin Bieber on this, because he’s in the same boat, and just married his wife Hailey.”

Shay Mooney adds, “This song means a lot to all of us, and we hope that this song resonates as much to our fans as it does to us.”

We’ll see if the guys add on to this already award winning song at The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday – airing on CBS.

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.”
