3x GRAMMY Award-winning duo Dan + Shay are aces when it comes to pulling our heartstrings, one song at a time. Today the band doubles down on that skillset with their new song “For The Both Of Us.”
Always one to blend their music seamlessly to visuals, the band has also released their emotionally charged official music video that will warm the most stubborn of hearts. Once again, the duo tapped P. Tracy to direct, but this time both band members offer home footage from their own, individual, wedding ceremonies to the cinematic experience.
“For The Both Of Us” (Smyers, Andy Albert, Jordan Reynolds) is the sixth song to release ahead of the duo’s highly anticipated, fifth studio album, Bigger Houses, available 9/15 worldwide. Prior songs to release early include 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.
The band begins to knock on the door of their Bigger Houses album release week by visiting the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa this Saturday 9/9 to perform LIVE on ESPN’s College Gameday at 9am ET before the Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas Longhorns step on the gridiron.
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.
