Shay Mooney’s Baby Inspires Dan + Shay’s New Track from "The Shack"

AtlanticDan + Shay’s new song from the soundtrack of The Shack was inspired by Shay Mooney’s son, Asher James, who was born January 24.

“‘When I Pray for You’ is one of the most special songs we’ve ever written,” Dan Smyers says. “With some good stories (and even a few manly tears), the song wrote itself,” he recalls.
