Country duo Dan + Shay just released a Holiday gift for their fans, as a thank you for all of their support in 2014! It’s been quite a successful year for the duo, who released their debut album back in April. Dan + Shay are currently on tour with Hunter Hayes, wrapping up at the end of the year. Their album, “Where It All Began,” is one of our favorites of this year, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the duo. Not only are they talented, they are also kind and generous to their fans, and genuinely passionate about what they do, on and off stage. We can’t thank them enough.
Dan + Shay’s debut album, “Where It All Began,” has been out for a week now, and we don’t know about you but we’ve been listening to it non-stop! The duo’s first single from the album, “19 You + Me” is steadily climbing the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, as well as hanging out in the top spot of the Heat Seekers Chart this week!
Dan + Shay debuted a new series, “Story + Song,” so you can hear the story behind your favorite track! They’ll be releasing a new video every Tuesday, so be sure to visit Dan+Shay.com for the latest! If we HAD to pick, our favorite songs are “Parking Brake” and “What You Do To Me,” and we can’t wait to hear the story behind them.
Check out the story behind “Show You Off” in the video below!

Pick up a copy of “Where It All Began” on iTunes and Amazon. We’re calling it as the album of the summer!
This was one of the first major TV appearances for the duo (they also stopped by Good Morning America last week!) and Shay Mooney sure made an impression – make sure you watch around the 2:30 mark! We still have chills.
Country duo Dan+Shay just released their debut album, “Where It All Began!” The duo, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, met just a year ago in Nashville (in a tent of all places), and started writing songs together the next morning. It’s been a whirlwind year for them, with the early success of their single, “19 You + Me,” which was added to country radio stations across the US last fall, and has peaked at #12 on the charts as of release day. They have already been nominated for an Academy of Country Music Award for Vocals Duo of the Year. Tune in on April 6th to see if they win!
Dan + Shay have been releasing tracks in anticipation of the album, including “19 You + Me,” “What You Do To Me,” and “Show You Off.” Each track has already been in heavy rotation in the Secret Fangirl office! (We may have played “What You Do To Me” about 10 times in a row after it was released during the Oscars.) The album has been streaming on Spotify for the past week, and yes we have been playing it every day since. We’re so excited to get the full album for ourselves!
From the first notes of this album, you know it’s going to be on repeat all summer long! The album is the perfect blend of country crooning, upbeat pop melodies, and lyrics that make us wish it was perpetually summer. Dan+Shay nailed it not only musically, but from live performances to hanging out with fans before concerts, these guys have the star quality and potential to become heavy hitters in the country world within the next year. Hopefully they can become the next big crossover duo into the pop world, too!
It’s really difficult to pick a favorite song, they’re all so good! A few standout tracks are definitely “Stop Drop + Roll”, “Parking Brake”, and “First Time Feeling”.
Basically, this album makes us want to drive around with the windows down, drinking real Southern sweet tea, and pick up our acoustic guitar again.
Make sure you pick up your copy of Dan+Shay’s debut album, “Where It All Began” on iTunes and Amazon now!
