Dan + Shay Share Their Secret to Success

Dan + Shay Share Their Secret to Success

Dan + Shay are one of the hottest country music acts around. They’re winning awards, creating number-one hit songs, and once they get back on the road, they’ll return to selling out venues and entertaining fans across the nation.

So, when it comes to finding out why the combination of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney works so well, Dan shares the winning formula, “Balance is definitely part of what makes Dan + Shay work.”

Dan adds, “When we found each other our songwriting balance, and our performing, and our harmonies kind of just met in the middle and created a sound that was unique, that people hadn’t heard before. Still till this day every-time we write we know our roles and we know where to balance each other out so that’s one of the Ying and Yang, ebb and flow things that makes this whole project work and makes it what it is today.”

“Glad You Exist” is their latest track in a string of hit songs that is climbing the country music charts.

Fans will be able to sing along with the guys on this when their The (Arena) Tour kicks off in September.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
