Critically acclaimed duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart with their 2014 release Where It All Began. They are the only new country duo in Nielsen SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1. The pair has also impressively sold over 1.5 million digital tracks and over 372,000 album equivalents to date, which includes 117 million streams of their music.
Their latest single "Nothin' Like You" hit No. 1 at Billboard's US Country Airplay, while their debut single "19 You + Me" is certified Platinum by the RIAA, selling over 1-million units. Dan + Shay have been nominated for both CMA and ACM's "Vocal Duo of the Year" for two years in a row, and were previously nominated for a CMT Music Video Award. The duo finished 2015 with their headlining Just the Right Kind of Crazy Tour across the Midwest and eastern United.
Country-pop singer/songwriter RaeLynn, an alum of NBC's hit show The Voice and one of Billboard's latest "13 Country Artists to Watch," will support the show. Her single "God Made Girls" reached top 10 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs.
Dallas-native Maren Morris, whose single "My Church" has garnered more than 25-million streams online, will open the show.
