Dan + Shay topped the country charts with their debut album, “Where It All Began,” and now the pop-country duo that features Pittsburgh native and CMU grad Dan Smyers will follow that with “Obsessed” on June 3.
The album, to be released on Warner Bros. Nashville, got its title from the fans, according to Shay Mooney: “Our fans know we live on social media both when we’re in and out of the studio, and we started noticing that hashtag ‘#obsessed’ being tagged in all our fans’ posts when we first revealed our single, ‘From The Ground Up.’ So when it came time to pick a title for this album, it seemed pretty appropriate that we’re even more obsessed with making music for our fans than they are to hear it.”
“From the Ground Up,” a silky smooth ballad, is currently Top 30 on country radio.
The debut album produced three Top 40 singles -- “19 You + Me,” “Show You Off" and “Nothin' Like You” -- that sold more than 1.6 million tracks and were streamed 140 million times.
Dan + Shay will open for Darius Rucker at the First Niagara Pavilion on June 26.
