Dan + Shay is a local country duo. Shay has been bound and determined to make his mark as a songwriter in Nashville ever since his father brought him to town when he was eight and when he was 12-years-old. Dan is orginally from Wexford, Pennsylvania. Shay is from Natural Dam, Arkansas, but they met in Nashville in December 2012. It wasn’t until meeting Dan that Shay found someone who he naturally felt comfortable with when it came to songwriting, singing harmonies, recording and eventually performing live.
“19 You and Me,” was their first single released and it made it to number 11 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart. Their single “Nothin Like You,” climbed all the way to number 1 in 2015. Their second album, Obsessed arrived in June 2016. The record debuted at eight on the Billboard charts thanks to the single “From the Ground Up,” which made it to number 1 on the Country Airplay Charts. This was quickly followed by a second chart-topper, “How Not To.”
Since then, they have had multiple hits, including “Tequila,” “Speechless,” and “10,000 Hours,” which he collaborated on with Justin Bieber. They have also worked with the legendary Kelly Clarkson, on their single, “Keeping Score.” They had the chance to perform with her at the 2019 ACM Awards.
They are also on a hot streak after releasing, “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” which we had the chance to feature back at the end of July. They are back with an incredible new Christmas Song, “Take Me Home for Christmas.”
This is such a catchy song. Vocally, their voices sound absolutely stunning. “Take Me Home for Christmas,” feels more like a laid back, Christmas beach party. You will catch yourself singing this song, even after it is over. Maybe this song will get you ready to have someone, take you home for Christmas. This Christmas love song is just what you need on your Christmas playlists this year. 2020 has been filled with uncertainty, but one thing that is certain, is that Dan + Shay, are here to stay. “Take Me Home for Christmas,” is available on all major streaming platforms!
