DAN + SHAY RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM OBSESSED, AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW
Duo to perform on upcoming episode of ABC’s Live! With Kelly
Featured in AUDIENCE Network special tonight at 8/7c
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (June 3, 2016) - Platinum-selling country duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) released their second Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville album, Obsessed today, available in stores and digitally now. The album, which follows their No. 1-peaking debut Where It All Began, was produced by Smyers and the award-winning Scott Hendricks. In celebration of the new release, the duo will appear on ABC’s Live! With Kelly on Wednesday, June 8.
To coincide with album release, the AUDIENCE Network will air a “Dan + Shay” concert special this evening at 8/7c on DIRECTV Channel 239/U-verse Channel 114. The special features exclusive interviews and performances of songs including “How Not To,” “Already Ready,” “19 You + Me” and “From the Ground Up.”
“From the Ground Up,” the lead single from Obsessed, was the most added song at country radio two weeks before official impact date and was their fastest rising single to date upon release. The song has already racked up more than 16 million streams and has consistently sold nearly 25,000 track equivalents per week. Written by Dan + Shay with Chris DeStefano and co-produced by Smyers and Scott Hendricks, it has been Top 10 on the Shazam country chart for seven straight weeks.
In anticipation of the album release, Dan + Shay have also released special companion videos for four of the 10 tracks from Obsessed. After starting by revealing “Already Ready” as part of their Facebook “Artist of the Day Feature,” the duo subsequently released videos for “Road Trippin’,” and “How Not To” as well as the title track, “Obsessed.” The name for the song and ultimately the album was directly inspired by fans, who posted the hashtag “#obsessed” all over social media upon the release of “From the Ground Up.”
In addition to the launch of their brand new album, Dan + Shay are celebrating the RIAA Gold certification of their first No. 1 single “Nothin’ Like You,” which was recently nominated for CMT’s Group/Duo Video of the Year Award.
Dan + Shay will join Darius Rucker to kick off the Good for a Good Time Tour today in Tampa, FL.
