Biggest Single Add Day at Country Radio This Year + Duo’s Biggest Career Add Day Ever
3x GRAMMY-winning duo Dan + Shay are already doing things “bigger” when it comes to songs from their forthcoming fifth studio album Bigger Houses. Marking the highest Country Aircheck debut since June 2022, the album’s anthemic lead single “Save Me The Trouble” became No. 1 most-added at country radio today, amassing an impressive 134 total adds across the board. It marks the biggest add-day for any country single released in 2023 so far as well as the biggest add-day of Dan + Shay’s entire career to date.
Available worldwide on September 15th, Bigger Houses was co-produced by the duo’s Dan Smyers alongside veteran country music producer Scott Hendricks and emphasizes a more live, stripped-down feel across all 12 tracks. The new music was created following a turbulent time in the band’s career that was kept private until the release of their revelatory short film, The Drive, where the celebrated singer/songwriters give a soul-baring review of the struggles and triumphs they faced behind closed doors.
In addition to “Save Me The Trouble,” Dan + Shay also recently delighted fans with “Heartbreak On The Map” and title track “Bigger Houses” – along with official music videos for all three. They will perform a selection of these new songs live this Friday (7/21) as part of the star-studded lineup for this summer’s Citi Concert Series on TODAY.
Recently announced as coaches for season 25 of NBC’s Emmy-winning program The Voice, they will join Reba McEntire, John Legend and Chance the Rapper in Spring 2024 as the first-ever coaching duo in the show’s history. The pair will bring a wealth of experience to their team, with a long list of impressive accolades that include becoming the first and only artist to win the GRAMMY Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance 3x consecutively since the category’s inception (2021 – “10,000 Hours,” 2020 – “Speechless,” 2019 – “Tequila”). Dan + Shay recently claimed their third consecutive win for Favorite Country Duo or Group at the American Music Awards, where they had swept their categories in 2020, becoming the first country artist ever to win Collaboration of the Year. In addition, the 3x ACM Awards Duo of the Year and 2x CMA Awards Duo of the Year winners were named Top Country Duo/Group at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.
The long-awaited new music follows the duo’s record shattering, critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning album, Good Things. Also co-produced by Smyers, the highly imaginative LP featured their most recent country radio No. 1’s – the Platinum-certified hits “I Should Probably Go To Bed” and 2x Platinum “Glad You Exist,” which marked the duo’s sixth consecutive No.1 and ninth career No.1, as well as the 5x Multi-Platinum global smash “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber. In addition, Good Things was the first country album in the streaming era to achieve RIAA Gold certification at release and is one of the only 12 albums all-genre to be released and go Gold in 2021.
In the ten years since they formed, Dan + Shay have garnered more than 11 billion career streams globally, multiple international No. 1 singles and 49 total RIAA Platinum and Gold certifications in the U.S. alone.
