From the 2x Platinum “From the Ground Up” to the 6x Platinum, GRAMMY-winning “Speechless,” Dan + Shay have proved time and again that they are among the go-to balladeers of country music – but they sure don’t need a deejay to get people out to the dance floor. This wedding season, plug in and pull up for “We Should Get Married” from the duo’s forthcoming fifth studio album Bigger Houses. The song’s official music video, directed by P. Tracy, brings the party to Las Vegas’ famous Little White Wedding Chapel, with “pawn shop rings” and “pink limousines” abound.
“We Should Get Married” (Smyers, Jimmy Robbins, Ernest Keith Smith) follows several early releases from the highly anticipated album, including current radio single “Save Me The Trouble.” Praised as a “blistering performance” (Billboard), the track landed at Country radio with having the most adds (134) for the week, marking the duo’s largest career add day ever, in addition to being the highest Country Aircheck debut since June 2022. Dan + Shay performed “Save Me The Trouble” and “Bigger Houses” as well as several previous hits on the 2023 Citi Concert Series on TODAY in July. Additional fan-favorite, pre-release tracks include “Heartbreak On The Map” and, most recently, “Always Gonna Be.”
Bigger Houses, co-produced by the duo’s Dan Smyers and Scott Hendricks, is due September 15 via Warner Music Nashville. Fans can now pre-order special edition vinyl versions of the album, available only by visiting the official Dan + Shay website.
Recently announced as coaches for season 25 of NBC’s Emmy-winning program The Voice, Dan + Shay 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, multi-award-winning, Platinum album, Good Things. Also co-produced by Smyers, the highly imaginative LP featured their most recent country radio No. 1’s – the Platinum-certified hits “I Should Probably Go To Bed” and 2x Platinum “Glad You Exist,” as well as the 5x Multi-Platinum global smash “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber. Good Things was also the first country album in the streaming era to achieve RIAA Gold certification at release and is one of the only 12 albums all-genre to be released and go Gold in 2021.
In the 10 years since they formed, Dan + Shay have garnered more than 11 billion career streams globally, multiple international No. 1 singles and 49 total RIAA Platinum and Gold certifications in the U.S. alone.
