Two-time GRAMMY winners and current nominees Dan + Shay continue to share good will and tidings of the holiday season from coast to coast. Fans will get a chance to tune in for another performance of their chart-topping original holiday song “Take Me Home For Christmas” (LISTEN HERE) on NBC’s The Voice finale next Tuesday (12/15) at 8:00pm/7:00c. The duo’s Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney also recently seized an opportunity to flip the song’s message on its head and help deserving families by taking home to them – literally.
Smyers and Mooney spent a weekend in Nashville alongside members of Middle Tennessee’s premier shelter-to-housing program, Safe Haven Family Shelter, giving “home for the holidays” a whole new meaning (WATCH HERE). The duo, who recently shared the experience with Entertainment Tonight (WATCH HERE) and TODAY (WATCH HERE), partnered with Ashley HomeStore to provide interior design services and brand-new Ashley Furniture for three local families moving into housing. Smyers and Mooney were both on hand to meet the selected families and share a special performance before joining them for the makeover reveals.
“We at Safe Haven are grateful to Dan + Shay, Ashley HomeStore and Warner Music Nashville for this amazing opportunity for our families, right at the holiday season,” said Safe Haven CEO Joyce Lavery. “Thank you for providing warm beds, beautiful furniture and personal design touches that give families that have been through so much this year a wonderful place to call home.”
Dan + Shay’s current Top 5 and climbing single, “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” has earned more than 130 million global streams to date and garnered their highest first-week equivalents for a duo-only release. Hailed as one of Billboard’s Top 50 Best Songs of the Year, it was produced by the duo’s Dan Smyers and co-written alongside bandmate Shay Mooney. It reached No.1 on the Country Digital Songs Sales chart upon release, with the cinematic music video taking home CMT Music Awards’ Duo Video of the Year trophy (WATCH HERE).
