Dan + Shay’s “Just The Right Kind Of Crazy” Tour Hits Long Island

Dan + Shay’s “Just The Right Kind Of Crazy” Tour stopped at Emporium in Patchogue, NY over the weekend.  It’s the perfect name for a tour that blends the right amount of their signature pop country harmonies and crazy on stage energy!

Opening act Kelsea Ballerini infused lots of rock and roll energy into her pop-country sound.  Her 45 minute set included tracks from her debut album “The First Time,” including singles “Dibs” and “Love Me Like You Mean It.”  A highlight of her set was a 90s medley that included songs from *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, encouraging everyone in the crowd to dance their craziest (or in our case, break out our boyband choreography).

Speaking of boy bands, Dan + Shay took us all back to middle school dance days with an outstanding cover of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You,” complete with disco ball lighting.  The song highlighted Shay’s powerful voice and made us wonder what other 90s boy band jams we’d like to have them cover (answer: any and all of them, please.)  Their set also included some classic rock covers, from Def Leppard to Bon Jovi, and an energetic mashup of “Dynamite” and “Moves Like Jagger.”

We love watching Dan + Shay perform because of the passion and energy they bring to each show.  You can tell they are having a blast on stage and the excitement is infectious.  The packed house was singing and moving along to every word.  The duo are also great at interacting with the crowd, pointing out and singing along with fans, even stopping to take a rose from a man in the audience without missing a note.

Their set included nearly every song from their debut album, “Where It All Began.”  Dan + Shay mentioned they have been busy working on new music, and played fan favorite “Partner In Crime.”   We can’t wait for more music from our favorite duo!

Watch Dan + Shay’s “Nothin’ Like You” Video!

Country duo Dan + Shay just released the music video for their new single “Nothin’ Like You” and its got our two favorite things: Dan + Shay and PUPPIES!  Sure sounds like a dream to us!  This is one of our favorite songs on their debut album, “Where It All Began.”

The band have a special message at the end of the video about adopting a shelter dog.  Dan + Shay have worked with Proverbs 12:10 Animal Shelter in Nashville, and we love Dan’s adorable rescue dogs, Joy and Chief!   Oh, and did we mention the video has PUPPIES!?

Watch the adorable video below and be sure to visit the Proverbs 12:10 Animal Shelter and the ASPCA to learn more about adopting and other ways you can help out!

Dan + Shay just surprised us all and dropped the lyric video for their latest single “Nothin’ Like You!”   It’s a perfect singalong song, so watch the video to learn the words and start belting it out!  (The line “and you’re stealing my heart like a gypsy” is a personal favorite for singing at the top of our lungs)

Dan + Shay + Nick (Jonas) Perform Mashup at the ACM Awards

Last night’s 50th annual ACM Awards made the Guinness Book of World Records for being the most attended live awards show ever. Thousands of country stars and fans packed the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, and the crowd’s energy level was off the charts. Performances included everyone from George Straight and Garth Brooks, to newcomers Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt and Best New Artist Winner Cole Swindell.

One highlight of the night was when Dan + Shay took the stage with Nick Jonas. They performed a special mashup of their hit “Nothin’ Like You,” along with Nick’s solo tracks “Jealous” and “Chains.” When we first heard they were performing together, we weren’t quite sure what to expect with such different sounds. But the mashup, produced by Dan Smyers, perfectly mixed the songs and genres together, with a stellar 3-part harmony. And of course there’s nothing like Shay Mooney’s voice (chills, every time.)

Watch the performance below!

Dan + Shay’s “Where It All Began Tour” Stops At Starland Ballroom in New Jersey

Dan + Shay’s “Where It All Began Tour” stopped at a packed Starland Ballroom in NJ on Saturday night.  If you’ve been to any concert in New Jersey, you know the crowds can get crazy, and this was definitely one of the best we’ve experienced.   It’s been wonderful to see the support for Dan + Shay grow since we first saw them around a year ago (Mohegan!)  and their live show is not to be missed. There’s nothing like a first time feeling, but they just get better and better each time we see them.

Opening act Canaan Smith got the crowd pumped up with his hit single “Love You Like That,” and songs from his recently released EP like “Hole In The Bottle” and “Mad Love.” Canaan also played a serious rock cover of Nick Jonas’ smash single “Jealous.” The Virginia native knows how to get a crowd singing and dancing along even if they’re not familiar with him.

One of the best things about watching Dan + Shay perform is seeing just how much they love being on stage.  If you can find something to do that makes you half as happy as they are performing, then you’d be pretty lucky.   Their passion and energy on stage is unrivaled – they really give it all on stage night after night.   And still make time for a post-show meet and greet.  We still get chills every time during “19 You + Me” when they let the crowd sing, and see their genuine reaction to having people sing one of their songs.  Although really the whole concert is one big singalong from start to finish. They played almost every song from their debut album, “Where It All Began,” a fun new track, “Partner in Crime,” and a few covers for good measure.

They certainly know their Jersey audience, as their set included covers of Journey and Def Leppard, and a little Guns N Roses, proving they know how to rock.  As we’ve said before, we’re sure they would have found success in any genre they chose, but we’re sure glad they chose country!   Shay Mooney’s voice is also chill-inducing, and harmonizes perfectly with Dan Smyers, who played both guitar and piano during the show.

P1170806

As usual, they had a small acoustic set before the concert AKA the return of the Tent Concert Series, where it all began for the duo.  The acoustic set gives fans a chance to ask questions, hang out with the guys, and hear a couple of songs in an intimate setting before the show.  We are always impressed by how great Dan + Shay are to their fans, and how much they appreciate each person that comes out to see them.

P1170817

Dan + Shay are nominated for Duo of the Year at the ACM Awards for the 2nd year in a row!  Make sure to tune into the awards on CBS April 19th to cheer them on and catch their performance with Nick Jonas!
