GRAMMY-nominated duo Dan + Shay debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with their self-titled third studio album the same week that its lead single “Tequila” reached No.1 on the Country Airplay chart, marking the first time since 2009 that a duo or group has topped both charts simultaneously. Their Platinum-certified single “Speechless” recently followed with a four-week No. 1 at country radio and a seven-week reigning run on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The single has already sold upwards of 1.3 million track equivalents, including more than 175 million streams. “Speechless” follows the Double Platinum-certified viral hit “Tequila,” written by Smyers, Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon, which became their first multi-week country radio No. 1 and is currently nominated for the GRAMMY Awards’ “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” and “Best Country Song.” They’ve performed the global smash, which has accumulated 355 million on-demand streams, on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Ellen, the CMA Fest concert special, the 53rd ACM Awards, TODAY Summer Concert Series, the CMT Music Awards and the 52nd CMA Awards. With “Tequila” and “Speechless,” Dan + Shay boast the two of the five most-streamed country songs of 2018, and they became only the sixth artists ever to hold the top two spots on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart simultaneously.
The skyrocketing pair made SoundScan recorded history as the first new country duo to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart with their Gold-certified first album, Where It All Began, featuring the No. 1 single “Nothin’ Like You” and the Platinum-certified “19 You + Me.” The breakout duo followed up with 2016’s Obsessed, which produced two more No. 1 hits with the Gold-certified “How Not To” and the Platinum-certified “From The Ground Up.” Dan + Shay recently joined Chris Young for the fall leg of his “Losing Sleep” run; they will kick off their sold-out “Dan + Shay The Tour” in March 2019.
