Dan + Shay offer a different shot of "Tequila"
Wednesday, April 4, 2018
– Dan + Shay are climbing the charts with their single "Tequila," but they offered an alternative live and acoustic video of "Tequila" last night.
Filmed in a Breckenridge, Col. lodge and directed by Patrick Tracy - the same location and director as the official video - the "Tequila" live and acoustic video features the platinum-selling duo accompanied by a single guitar.
Dan Smyers of the duo penned "Tequila" alongside Nicolle Galyon and Jordan Reynolds.
"Tequila" is the first single from Dan + Shay's third studio album, due out later this year. The forthcoming LP follows Gold-certified debut album "Where It All Began" with the hits "Nothin' Like You" and Platinum-certified "19 You + Me" in addition to sophomore album "Obsessed," which contains the hits "From the Ground Up" and "How Not To." This summer, Dan + Shay will hit the road with Rascal Flatts on their Back To Us Tour.

Dan + Shay
The track list on Dan +Shay's self-titled third album has a song crediting Kelly Clarkson as a featured vocalist. Upon a full listen, you will think they forgot about a few others. The disc features the duo's contemporary sound that mirrors many artists in the genre. The lead-off track, "Alone Together," evokes Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox and is half of the only seven minutes on the tidy 35-minute collection that represent anything near up-tempo.

Dan Myers and James Shay Mooney came from different parts of the country (Allegheny County, Pa. and Arkansas, respectively) and met in Nashville where each was tracking the well-worn path to country music success. They began writing songs together a little over three years ago, already have a hit album ("Where It All Began") and now have another tiger by the tail.
Dan + Shay know a hook, can write songs and have identified a sweet spot in the formula of country music success. »»»
Where It All Began
Dan + Shay debut with a likable disc, if your bent is the Rascal Flatts world of country. In fact, Dan Smyers of Pittsburgh and Shay Mooney of Arkansas come mighty close to mimicking the longstanding country stars with the biggest difference that they're a duo and Rascal Flatts is a trio. Perhaps the similarities ought come as no surprise because the duo started writing the day after they met in Nashville in December 2012. Guess who placed their first song on hold? Rascal Flatts. »»»
