Dan + Shay = a string of three big ol' hits. Not too shabby!
The duo's "How Not To" is the No. 1 country song in the U.S. on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts. It's their third consecutive No. 1, and has been streamed more than 44 million times, according to their record label.
Once again, thank you. 3 #1s in a row. What a dream. https://t.co/TjLtgxY3of
"Huge shout out to our friends in country radio," the duo's Dan Smyers offered in a video posted on Twitter. "For playing the heck out of this song, for believing in us, for completely changing our lives. That is three No. 1s in a row, baby! That is so amazing!"
Added Shay Mooney, "I feel like we need to pinch ourselves a little bit. This feels like a dream. Thank you country radio. Thank you to our fans. We love you guys so much from the bottom our heart."
The pair isn't wasting any time naming a new single, either. "Road Trippin'" is the follow-up, as decided by fans. "Fans would always make posts saying, 'Road tripping to the Dan + Shay show!' – and we thought that was fantastic," Mooney says through the duo's record label. "We knew we had to make it into a song. We had a blast writing 'Road Trippin', and I think that comes across." Check it out below.
