After taking a (much needed) break to re-group and work on new music, Dan + Shay are back with a brand new single! The duo posted a “be back soon” message just before the Holidays and returned earlier this week with some exciting news: new music! Have we mentioned how much we’ve missed them? The song got high praise from Warner Nashville President John Esposito (side note: we have seen Espo at shows rocking out and he is the bomb) and Scooter Braun, who called it a “game changer.” Well, the wait is over and “From The Ground Up” is here! WE HAVE NEW MUSIC FROM DAN + SHAY!!! Watch the video below!
The track was co-written by Chris DeStefano (who has written many of our JAMS) and is the first track off of Dan + Shay’s upcoming sophomore release. We had high hopes for this song – Dan + Shay’s “Where It All Began” is one of our favorite albums of all time – and it did not disappoint!
A friend of ours has described Dan + Shay as a country version of Backstreet Boys, and “From The Ground Up” certainly fits the bill. The emotional power ballad is driven by the smooth harmonies and powerful vocals we’ve come to know and love from the duo. Dan + Shay draw from both pop songwriting and a traditional country narrative. We’re sure this song will be played at many upcoming weddings!
