CMT Music Award winners Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) and superstar Kelly Clarkson are “Keeping Score” on a brand new song and “icon” video out now. The track is the fifth new track released from the duo’s forthcoming eponymous album out June 22 via Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville (PRE-ORDER HERE).
“It is such an honor for us to sing this duet with Kelly,” said Smyers. “Not only is she one of the most incredible vocalists of our generation, she is one of the most genuine, kind-hearted people we have ever met. We’re glad this song resonated with her as much as it did with us.”
With the new album just a week away, the award winning “Tequila,” their current and fastest-rising country radio single “Tequila” arrives inside the Top 5 with more than 120 million on-demand streams. It was named this week to Shazam’s “Songs of Summer” list, which predicts the most popular songs of the season based on Shazam chart toppers, movement, trends and more. The duo bring this latest smash hit and more to life on the TODAY Summer Concert Series June 25. Already released track “Speechless” has also quickly gained favor with fans, surpassing 10 million on-demand streams and more than 5.5 million views of its official video on YouTube.
With a string of performances during last week’s CMA Fest, Rolling Stone called their CMT Awards Show performance a “knockout,” adding, “One of country’s most gifted lead vocalists, Mooney absolutely crushed his parts, easily shifting from the pillow-soft delivery of the opening verse to the cathartic, hurricane force wails in the song’s climax.” Their set at Thursday night’s Nissan Stadium also received rave reviews as Billboard noted, “The guys were beaming as they delivered flawless performances of ‘Nothing Like You,’ ‘How Not To’ and their current hit ‘Tequila.’ The Tennessean hailed their performance as one of Top 10 of the week.
The chart-topping duo is out on the road with Rascal Flatts for their “Back To Us” Tour through the summer, and Taste of Country applauded their set at the kick off in Hartford, CT for showcasing their “spellbinding harmonies.” Platinum-certified “19 You + Me” and Gold-certified No. 1 “Nothin’ Like You” off Where It All Began, the album that made them the first new country duo in Soundscan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, are sure to be staples throughout the run. Their sophomore project Obsessed produced additional No. 1 hits in the Platinum-certified “From the Ground Up” and Gold-certified “How Not To.”
