The Platinum-selling pair pulled in their latest triumph yesterday, as their already enormously popular new single “Speechless” became the No. 1 most-added single at country radio with 48 stations. The “slow-burning love song” (Billboard) has sold nearly 300,000 track equivalents and accumulated more than 40 million total on-demand streams prior to terrestrial airplay, earning a spot in the Top 30 on Nielsen’s Country On-Demand Streaming chart for 11 consecutive weeks. Its ultra-romantic music video features footage from each of their weddings and has earned 14 million views on YouTube. Last week the duo took the tune to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor stage in a performance that Rolling Stone praised for “effortless vocal dripping in satisfied desire” (watch here).
“Speechless” follows Dan + Shay’s multi-week chart-topping smash “Tequila,” the No. 4 most-streamed country song of 2018 with nearly 200 million on-demand streams to date. In addition to their performance on Kimmel (watch here), the duo has served the single to audiences at Ellen, the 53rd Annual ACM Awards, the 2018 CMT Music Awards and the Citi Summer Concert Series on TODAY. “Tequila” is the flagship single from the duo’s self-titled album, which debuted atop the Billboard Country Albums chart and, with 29 million streams, earned the highest debut-week stream total of any new country release this year. Co-produced by Smyers alongside the award-winning Scott Hendricks and featuring a writing credit from the duo on 10 tracks, it is the only country album released this year to have every song hit Nielsen’s Country On-Demand Streaming chart.
Fans who want to tune in to more Dan + Shay can catch the duo on Good Morning America with Luke Bryan and Sugarland on August 28, where they will announce the nominees for the 52nd Annual CMA Awards. They are currently sharing their music out on the road with Rascal Flatts for their “Back To Us” Tour through the summer and will join Chris Young for the fall leg of his “Losing Sleep” Tour in October. They’ll take their collection of No. 1 hits and brand new tunes across the globe with a six-date UK tour kicking off January 17, 2019.
