Cam Premieres Debut Single “My Mistake”

Rising country star Cam, whom you might remember from the Where It All Began Tour with Dan + Shay, just released her first official single!  The track, “My Mistake,” is something we all can relate to.  The single is her first since signing a deal with Sony Music Nashville earlier this year. We are looking forward to hearing more from Cam this year – her opening set on the Where It All Began Tour was a blast!  She had the crowd pumped up in no time, with tracks like “Country Ain’t Never Been Pretty,” “Fireball Whiskey,” and “Go Get ‘Em, Cam.”   We love her clever, honest lyrics paired with classic country stylings.

Cam is currently working on her debut album.  Get to know Cam and listen to “My Mistake” below.  Pickup a copy of the single on iTunes now!

If you haven’t had a chance to see Dan + Shay live, this is one tour you don’t want to miss.  They are one of our favorite artists to see live because of how passionate they are on stage.  You can see how much they absolutely love what they are doing, and they’re having fun, too.  And the show is one big singalong – everyone in the audience knows the words.  And the harmony.  Watch their performance of “Partner and Crime” from Highline Ballroom in NYC on their first headlining tour!

Dan + Shay’s Where It All Began Tour Hits NYC & Philly

Country duo Dan + Shay just wrapped up their first headlining tour, which included a sold-out show at NYC’s Highline Ballroom.  That’s right – a sold out country show in Chelsea.  We’ve been counting down the days to this show since we first found out about it in May, and they did not disappoint.  We can’t say enough good things about them – not only are they talented musicians and performers, they are also extremely kind and generous to their fans.  Luckily we planned to see them again in Philly the next night, and they were just as amazing the second time around!


The “Where It All Began” tour is in support of their record breaking debut album of the same name, one of our favorites of the year.  Dan + Shay played every song off the album, and the enthusiastic crowd sang along to every word. (You know when some artists are like “now you sing!” and it’s just incoherent mumbling / crickets?  Yeah, that doesn’t happen at a Dan + Shay concert.)  They also let us know that they’ve been working on new music, and played a more recent track, “Partner In Crime.” They did a special unplugged version of “Can’t Say No,” sitting on the edge of the stage like one big campfire singalong.  



Their set also included covers of Def Leopard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” 5SOS “She Looks So Perfect,” and Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite,” proving that they’re just as comfortable playing rock, pop-punk, even hip-hop, as they are country. We’re sure they would have found success in any genre they chose. (Although we’re sure glad they chose country!) 


Dan + Shay are one of a few artists that really leave it all on the stage, night after night.  Shay Mooney has such an incredible voice and range, and his harmonies with Dan Smyers repeatedly gave us chills. One of the things that struck us the most is that you can feel how much they truly love being on stage and performing.  Their genuine excitement and passion is infectious, spreading through the entire crowd.   You can see how much it means to them to have people singing along to their songs, even to their hit first single “19 You + Me,” it’s still the greatest feeling in the world.

Opening act Cam is definitely one to watch – her fun set got the crowd pumped up, as she sang about everything from Fireball Whisky to real country style ( after all, “Country Ain’t Never Been Pretty!”)  One of our favorite songs was one she described as what she sings to herself in the mirror to pump herself up – “Go Get ‘Em, Cam.”

The Where It All Began Tour just wrapped up in Ohio, but you can see Dan + Shay with Hunter Hayes on the road once again this fall for the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour.  Check out the dates here!   VIP packages are on sale as well, which include a pre-show acoustic session, Q&A, and meet and greet.

Dan + Shay “Show You Off” In New Music Video

When it comes to interacting with fans, Dan + Shay are one of the best artists out there.  So when it came time to release the video for their new single, “Show You Off,” they asked their fans to tweet, tumblr and share the news in order to unlock it.  While they originally had a goal of 2 days, their loyal fans unlocked the video in around an hour!  Check it out below!

The video shows off their fans and what life is like on the road  for the busy duo, who have been on tour with Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton this year.  They even feature fans speaking about what make Dan + Shay so special to them.  (We totally agree with all of you!)  From staying hours after every show doing signings, to constant interaction on Twitter, the guys totally get that it’s the little things that can make a fan’s day.

Dan + Shay are going on their first headlining tour this fall across the US, including a stop in NYC!  The Where It All Began Tour is on sale now!  And if you haven’t gotten a copy of our favorite album of the year, what are you waiting for?   Get “Where It All Began” on iTunes now!

They’ll also be stopping by Live with Kelly and Michael on Thursday, July 31st.  Make sure you tune in!  (Or stop by the studio in NYC and say hello!)

Dan + Shay Announce “Where It All Began” Headlining Tour Dates!

Country duo Dan + Shay just announced dates for their first headlining tour to support their debut album, “Where It All Began!”  The tour kicks off in October in Minneapolis, and they’ll be making stops across the country including New York City!  We get extremely excited when country artists have smaller scale shows in NYC, as it’s unfortunately a rare occurrence!  And we might have asked Dan + Shay (and Hunter Hayes) to make sure they included a stop in NY on their next tour (thanks for listening! ;).)  We cannot WAIT for this!   
We just caught Dan + Shay opening for Hunter Hayes on the We’re Not Invisible Tour, with a short acoustic set pre-show.  They were amazing live, and our only complaint was that we didn’t get to hear enough of our favorite songs!  Which would be every track on the album.  So we’re thrilled that we’ll be seeing them again soon, playing a full set! 
Watch the tour announcement below & stay tuned to DanAndShay.com for ticketing and meet & greet info!  Tickets go on sale next week.
