Dan + Shay Celebrate Their Very First Album on its 7th Anniversary

Dan + Shay Celebrate Their Very First Album on its 7th Anniversary

It was in 2014 that Dan + Shay released their very first album together, Where It All Began.

Where it all did begin, was December 7th, 2012 – that’s when Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney were introduced to one another at a party. The very next day their musical journey together started as they got together to write some songs.

2 months later, they were officially a country music making duo, and had a record contract.

October 14th 2013, their single, “19 You + Me,” hit country radio, and 5 months later, April 1st 2014, their debut album, Where It All Began was released.

Looking back on that, Dan + Shay shared, “7 years ago today we released our debut album ‘where it all began’. it was a collection of *demos* that we made on a laptop before we were even officially a band and it went on to change our lives forever. just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone who’s been with us on this journey. y’all inspire us more than you know and we can’t wait to get back on the road to sing these songs together. here’s a little acoustic bit of our first #1 at country radio, “nothin’ like you” (Abby always said this should have been the 2nd single after “19 you + me”…whoops ). what was your fave song on this album? shay’s dad says his favorite was ‘party girl’.”

Of course these days we’re glad that Dan + Shay exist…

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
