Dan + Shay's "Good Things" sets record

Sunday, August 15, 2021 – Dan + Shay's "Good Things," released on Friday," became the first country album in the streaming era to achieve RIAA Gold certification at release.

The news comes in right as the duo's current single "Glad You Exist" claims the top spot on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts, marking their sixth consecutive and ninth career number one.

Dan + Shay will look have a new single "Steal My Love" going for adds at country radio today.

"Three years ago, Dan + Shay made history with 'Tequila' – and have continued on a meteoric rise ever since," said Warner Music Nashville Chairman & CEO, John Esposito. "This extraordinary accomplishment is yet another testament to their unparalleled talent and work ethic. The first and only country album in the streaming era to be certified Gold upon release, are you kidding? That's freaking insane. I couldn't be one iota prouder that Dan + Shay are part of the Warner Music Nashville family. They are artists of a generation."

Mitch Glazier, Chairman & CEO, RIAA, said, "Dan + Shay are no stranger to high-ranking Gold and Platinum achievements. Every Dan + Shay album released has been certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA. An album only goes Gold on release when an artist has forged the most enduring and energized connection with their fans."

Last Friday, Dan + Shay celebrated the new LP with the Good Things Album Release Concert at The Great Lawn in Centennial Park, marking the first time Nashville's park has ever hosted a major concert. Label mates Ingrid Andress and Morgan Evans opened the show before the duo came out to a capacity crowd of 10,000 people.

Following the performance, Dan + Shay were surprised with several plaques, including Gold certification for "Good Things," 4x Platinum certification for "10,000 Hours," Platinum certification for "I Should Probably Go To Bed" and Gold certification for "Glad You Exist."

Each song was co-written and produced by Dan Smyers while Shay Mooney put his pen to eight tracks. One look at the credits, and you'll know which direction it will be headed. ...
CD review - Dan + Shay The track list on Dan +Shay's self-titled third album has a song crediting Kelly Clarkson as a featured vocalist. Upon a full listen, you will think they forgot about a few others. The disc features the duo's contemporary sound that mirrors many artists in the genre. The lead-off track, "Alone Together," evokes Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox and is half of the only seven minutes on the tidy 35-minute collection that represent anything near up-tempo. The duo puts the ballads on ...
CD review - Obssessed Dan Myers and James Shay Mooney came from different parts of the country (Allegheny County, Pa. and Arkansas, respectively) and met in Nashville where each was tracking the well-worn path to country music success. They began writing songs together a little over three years ago, already have a hit album ("Where It All Began") and now have another tiger by the tail. Dan + Shay know a hook, can write songs and have identified a sweet spot in the formula of country music success. ...
