Dan + Shay: “Where It All Began” Out Today! (@DanAndShay)

unnamedBreakout artists Dan + Shay released their highly anticipated debut album Where It All Began today on Warner Bros. Records. Currently No. 1 on iTunes Country Chart and No. 3 on iTunes overall chart, the duo was the only new act to perform at the sold-out iHeartRadio Country Festival this weekend, playing to 19,000 screaming fans in Austin, Tx. The pair will celebrate with performances on Good Morning America and The Ellen Degeneres Show, with release week culminating at the ACM Awards where Dan + Shay are nominated for their first ever award for “Vocal Duo of the Year.” Where It All Began was exclusively available for streaming a week before its official release on Spotify, where Dan + Shay clocked 1 million streams. The duo has sold over half a million tracks overall, including over 450,000 of their hit single “19 You + Me.” USA Today just featured the breakout act as an On The Verge artist, bragging that the debut single “‘19 You + Me’ equals quick success,” with People Country featuring the track as a Hot Music Download in the new issue on stands now. The track also earned Dan + Shay the title of most played new duo at country radio in 2013 after its debut in October.

The ACM Award Nominees have joined Hunter Hayes on his “We’re Not Invisible Tour,” running through May and continuing on the road through the summer joining Blake Shelton, on his “Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014” in June.

Called one of the “acts that will help define 2014” by Billboard, the country duo wrote the entire 12-track album, while it was produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Nashville songwriter, Danny Orton (full track listing below).
