Inspiration new single available now

If there is one thing 3x Grammy-winning duo Dan + Shay are always gonna be…it’s open and honest with their fans and community. The celebrated singer/songwriters did just that with their recent short film The Drive, a revelatory look into their private life and what they faced behind closed doors. The duo continues to shed light on their struggles and triumphs with the inspiration behind their new track “Always Gonna Be,” available now.

Written by both Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney alongside frequent collaborators Ashley Gorley, Jordan Minton and Jordan Reynolds, the song is the fourth offering off the forthcoming, highly anticipated fifth studio album, Bigger Houses, co-produced by Smyers and veteran music producer Scott Hendricks set to release worldwide on September 15th via Warner Music Nashville.

To celebrate the upcoming release, the duo are giving fans the opportunity to pre-order special edition, colored, vinyl versions of the album available only by visiting the duo’s website.

“In March of 2022, we met to discuss the future of the band,” Dan + Shay share. “One of the most important things we talked about that night was our responsibility to our fans who had been with us through every high and low of the past ten years. Whether we decided to call it quits, or dive headfirst into a new chapter, we felt that we owed it to our fans to make peace with the idea of Dan + Shay in our hearts. No matter the outcome, the music we created together would live on forever, and we wanted to be able to celebrate that rather than looking back in vain.”

Dan + Shay first announced Bigger Houses with the release of three new songs “Heartbreak On The Map,” title track “Bigger Houses” and the duo’s lead single “Save Me The Trouble,” which landed at country radio having the most adds for the week, marking the duo’s largest career add day ever in addition to being the highest Country Aircheck debut since June 2022.In addition to the new tracks, the band also released video content for all three.

Recently announced as coaches for season 25 of NBC’s Emmy-winning program The Voice, they will join Reba McEntire, John Legend and Chance the Rapper in spring 2024 as the first-ever coaching duo in the show’s history. The pair will bring a wealth of experience to their team, with a long list of impressive accolades that include becoming the first and only artist to win the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance 3x consecutively since the category’s inception (2021 – “10,000 Hours,” 2020 – “Speechless,” 2019 – “Tequila”). Dan + Shay recently claimed their third consecutive win for Favorite Country Duo or Group at the American Music Awards, where they had swept their categories in 2020, becoming the first country artist ever to win Collaboration of the Year. In addition, the 3x ACM Awards Duo of the Year and 2x CMA Awards Duo of the Year winners were named Top Country Duo/Group at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

The long-awaited new music follows the duo’s record shattering, critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning album, Good Things.
