Dan + Shay's Pop Star Friends Are 'Obsessed' With Country Music
Dan + Shay's crossover appeal has earned them a few famous non-country friends, as was evidenced by the duo's recent participation in Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's surprise Las Vegas wedding. Dan Smyers tells us while he and Shay Mooney been rubbing elbows with stars in other genres of music lately, these new friends are most interested in their country music connection. "It is really cool to meet people, you know, other genres and people that are doing other things and realize how many people truly love country music. We have folks like Shawn Mendes or Demi Lovato hit us up and be like, 'I am obsessed with country music -- the story-telling, the songs, the harmonies, everything,' and that's awesome. We're so proud to be a part of this community and to have people from the outside looking in like, 'Man, I wish we had something like that. I wish we had that sense of community' just makes us feel really glad to be here in Nashville doing what we do."
Dan + Shay are racing up the country charts with "All To Myself."
The duo hits the road with Florida Georgia Line on their Can't Say I Ain't Country tour beginning tomorrow (Thursday, June 13th) in Rogers, AR.
