“19 You + Me” is the debut single for the duo, which shot into the Top 20 on the charts after only thirteen weeks and garnered them the distinction of being the most-added duo at country radio in 2013. The nostalgic feel-good single was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton and is the first track from their forthcoming album due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, Penn. native, and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, Ark., the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers' house, in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers alike. Currently putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled release, the debut album is written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Orton. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Hunter Hayes “We’re Not Invisible” and Blake Shelton “Ten Times Crazier 2014” tours.
