Dan + Shay is composed of vocalists and songwriters Shay Mooney and Dan Smyers. Before the duo’s formation, Mooney was a solo artist and Smyers was a member of a group called Bonaventure as well as a previous member of the band, Transition. The two met in Nashville, Tennessee in 2012, and started writing together shortly after. They released their debut single the following year.
Their debut album, Where It All Began was released in 2014, and saw them open for artists like Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton. That year, they also made their Grand Ole Opry debut and received their first ACM Award nomination for ‘Vocal Duo of the Year.’ Their second album, Obsessed followed in 2016, while the duo’s third album, Good Things, skyrocketed them into superstardom.
The album has aided in countless wins and honours including GRAMMY, CMA, ACM, CMT, American Music, Billboard and iHeartRadio Music Awards, among others. It also added to the duo’s nearly eight billion streams globally, 39 RIAA Platinum and Gold certifications and eight #1 singles at US country radio.
