"From the Ground Up" Turns Dan+Shay into Hawaiian Wedding Singers

Warner Music NashvilleThis week, “From the Ground Up” becomes the second number one of Dan+Shay’s career. Dan Smyers says it’s especially significant since he and Shay Mooney wrote the song about the lifelong romances of their grandparents.

“The message of true love and long-lasting love is something that we felt needed to be out there…” Dan says, “and to have so many people… translating it to their own personal lives is really special to us and something that's never really happened in our career to this point.”

It’s even led to some pretty cool wedding invitations, including one to perform in Hawaii.

“I think it's a professional baseball player… “ Shay adds. “You know, your first dance song is… a big moment in your life… it's a lot of pressure, I feel like. That's gonna be a little nerve-wracking… if you mess that up, it's like, 'Oh, thanks for ruining our lives!'” he laughs.  

Dan+Shay kick off The Obsessed Tour November 10 in Denver, Colorado, before they head for the islands November 18 to play The Republik in Honolulu, Hawaii.
