Dan + Shay

Warner Music Nashville recording artists Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney joined Country Music #CMchat for a special “Jessica Northey’s birthday edition” Twitterview. What better way to celebrate your birthday than with double the pleasure and double the fun?!

Dan + Shay didn’t just join us as virtual gifts for #CMchat’s creator, but also to promote their ever-so-exciting and impressive nomination for the ACM New Artist of the Year.

In fact, because of the overwhelming success of Dan + Shay thus far, the two recently embarked on a headlining tour, the Where It All Began Tour.

While we had a firm grip on what Dan + Shay have been up to as of late, as well as their successful run in country music thus far, we couldn’t wait to share some time with them, on our #CMchat platform, to learn more about this beloved pair. We were surprised to learn that both Dan and Shay aren’t huge fans of bugs. Okay, we aren’t either, but we kind of like that they gave the community the visual of two grown men, standing on chairs screaming at the sight of an insect. We also found out that the most valuable lesson they learned from a country song is that tequila makes her clothes fall off. We didn’t ask them to embellish, though we probably should have …
