Dan + Shay met at a party in Nashville in December 2012 and immediately knew they could write and make great music together. Less than a year later, the duo released their first song, the hit "19 You and Me" which sold nearly 1 million copies and landed in the Top 10.
Finally, after nearly 5 years of hits, the duo of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney scored their first award Thursday night at the 2018 CMT Music Awards. The pair won for "Duo Video Of The Year" for the video for "Tequila."
After winning the award, the song is bound for #1 and would be their 4th song to top the chart.
We won our first award! It is so fitting that our first win was fan voted. Our fans have been by our side since DAY one, and because of that, we’ve felt like winners all along. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/zZNbnpVoZw— Dan + Shay (@DanAndShay) June 7, 2018
