Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney Is Glad He Came From A Musical Family

Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney are brimming with talent, and while they credit each other with helping their collaboration as Dan + Shay work so well, Shay shares that the musical seeds in his life were planted by his family.

He says, “I did come from a very musical family, pretty much everyone in my whole family…extended family everybody does something in music it was great growing I mean there were so many people that I looked up to musically that were so much better than me and I think that obviously helped me get where I wanted to be because there was so many people who were amazing at music thanks family for that.”

Fans can’t wait for the guys to hit the road – as their The (Arena) Tour kicks off in September in South Carolina.

Dan + Shay’s latest track, “Glad You Exist” is now a Top-10 (and climbing) hit…

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.
