Dan + Shay is the country duo comprised of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, who met in Nashville, Tenn. in 2012 and began writing together. Dan + Shay's first single, "19 You + Me" was released on October 14, 2013, and it garnered positive reviews. Their debut album, Where It All Began, dropped on April 1, 2014, and in that same year, they were nominated by the Academy of Country Music for the Vocal Duo of the Year. They began touring with Hunter Hayes as his opening act for his We're Not Invisible tour starting in March 2014, and from June to October 2014, Dan + Shay opened for Blake Shelton's Ten Times Crazier tour. The two soon started their own 10-show headlining tour, which kicked off in Minneapolis, and have been performing for enthusiastic audiences ever since.
Nothin' Like Her
The hit single "Nothin' Like You" was inspired by Mooney's ex-girlfriend, country singer Veronica Ballestrini, whom they collaborated with on singles they would post to YouTube. Together, their music reached over 150,000 views. The two parted ways in 2013, and Mooney and Smyers went on to marry Hanna Billingsley and Abby Law, respectively, within five months of each other.
