Dan + Shay Announce New Record and Release New Song “Good Things”

Dan + Shay announce new record and release new song “Good Things,” available now, July 15th on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

Just as we anticipated, superstar duo Dan + Shay have officially announced their new album and released a brand new song! Three years after the self-titled album transformed the duo into bonafide cross-country superstars, the singers are ready to release another project. Good Things will be available everywhere on August 13th. To hold fans over, Dan + Shay dropped the title track, available now.

The new single joins smash hits “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber, “Glad You Exist,” and “I Should Probably Go To Bed.” “Good Things” is a beautifully put-together tune. It depicts a broken relationship, where they still think the world of their ex. Dan + Shay manage to bring their country-pop flair to the song in a nostalgic, yet innovative way. The uplifting side of the song is so refreshing.

“So when it’s late at night and you’re still wide awake // If you’re with your friends or you’re lonely // When you hear somebody start to sty my name // Oh when you think of me // I hope you think good things”

If the release says anything about the record, Good Things is sure to be another platinum-selling success for the duo. The production, the vocals, and the lyrics all work effortlessly together. 

Fans can catch “Good Things” and many more songs on the newly resumed ‘Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour.’ The tour rolls through New York City’s Madison Square Garden on September 16th. Find tickets here.

Dan + Shay Hint at New Music and Album Coming Soon

Dan + Shay hinted at new music and album coming soon on their social media over the weekend. Could the first song from the upcoming album be released this week?!

dan-and-shay-new-songs

It has been three years since superstar country duo Dan + Shay have released their incredible self-titled record. The men have been very active on social media, but over the weekend, they finally hinted at the news we were all waiting for.

First Dan + Shay took to their Instagram stories to share the new dates for their ‘The Arena Tour.’ The photo was captioned with “hint: new album before tour.” The tour kicks off in September, so we could be expecting a brand new record sooner rather than later! We already know the record is finished, based on a recent Instagram post.

Soon after, the duo took to their stories yet again, simply sharing “it’s gonna be a good week.” This further proves our theory that new music is coming from Dan + Shay this week! Gear up and keep checking back for more information as it develops.

The last song that Dan + Shay released was their touching and viral song “Glad You Exist.” The duo also recently released their song “I Should Probably Go to Bed,” which landed at the top of the charts at the beginning of the year. Both songs will most likely be included on the next record, which Dan + Shay are calling their “best album yet.”

Darius Rucker Scores 10th #1 Song with “Beers And Sunshine”

Darius Rucker’s “Beers And Sunshine” earns him his 10th #1 as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

Darius Rucker has provided us with so many hits and just downright great music over the past two decades. A staple in country music, Rucker deserves all his accomplishments. His latest single, “Beers And Sunshine” is his first solo country radio single, since 2018. It is no surprise that it is this week’s chart-topping single!

Written by Rucker with J.T. Harding, Josh Osborne, and Ross Copperman, during quarantine, the song is everything we want in a fun and enticing summer anthem. The song reminds us to enjoy all the little things in life, exactly what we need, during today’s day and age.

“Beers and sunshine / Bonfires and summertime / Back porch nights in South Carolina / Ain’t nothing finer than me and my girl striking up a little lighter / ‘Cause everybody’s down in a world gone crazy / Don’t know how to fix it but I think maybe / Turn on the good times, turn off the TV / Yeah, the only BS I need is beer and sunshine”

As always, Rucker is one of the most exciting artists to see perform live, whether it is as a solo artist or as the lead vocalist in Hootie & the Blowfish. “Beers And Sunshine” is sure to be a hit, during live performances. Congrats to Rucker and his team for another smash hit!

Luke Combs’ “Better Together” Earns Him 10th Consecutive # 1

Luke Combs’ continues his record-breaking streak as “Better Together” earns him his 10th consecutive #1 as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

There is no one like Luke Combs in the country music industry. Since he burst onto the scene in 2016, fans have flocked to him and his music rather instantaneously. Everything Combs touches turns platinum, and his latest single “Better Together” off his sophomore record What You See Is What You Get is no exception, making its debut at the top of the country music charts.

Co-written by Combs with Dan Isbell, and Randy Montana, “Better Together” is a monumental, yet simple love song that was truly made for Combs’ voice. Furthermore, the song represents an unprecedented feat. as the superstar is the first country artist in history to score the top spot on the charts with every single that he has released to country radio since his debut.

“Better Together” joins the collection of songs like “When It Rains It Pours,” “She Got the Best of Me,” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart.” It follows “Lovin’ on You,” which went number one last year.

“Some things just go better together and probably always will / Like a cup of coffee and a sunrise, Sunday drives and time to kill / What’s the point of this ol’ guitar if it ain’t got no strings / Or pourin’ your heart into a song that you ain’t gonna sing”

There is truly no stopping the hitmaker! Congratulations to Luke and his team!

Dan + Shay’s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” Earns Them 8th Career # 1

Dan + Shay’s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” earns them their 8th career and 5th consecutive #1 as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

In just a few short years, duo Dan + Shay have risen to superstardom. The GRAMMY winners and current nominees have a handful of number one hits under their belt, including their smash with pop icon Justin Bieber, “10,000 Hours” and the monumental “Tequila.” This week, Dan + Shay’s catchy tune, “I Should Probably Go to Bed” became a chart-topper too, marking the pair’s eighth career and fifth consecutive number one hit.

Released back in August after a social media hiatus by the duo, the song quickly won the hearts of fans and music lovers everywhere. The pop-country tune resonated with fans across the genre, continuing to cement Dan + Shay as superstars. “I Should Probably Go to Bed” marks a new chapter of music for the singers, as they most likely prepare for their next full-length project.

Dan + Shay earn 8th career and 5th consecutive #1 with “I Should Probably Go To Bed”

So Ishould probably go to bed (Ah) / I should probably turn off my phone / I should quit while Im ahead (Ah) / I should probably leave you alone / Cause I know in the mornin(In the mornin) / Ill be callin(Ill be callin) / Sayin’ “sorryfor the things I said / So I, yeah, I should probably go to bed

Country Songs That Embody 2020

The top country songs that embody 2020…

At last, 2020 is coming to an end. Despite how crazy this year has been, country music still prevailed, bringing us new songs, records, and even livestreams to enjoy. We thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the songs that we think personified this year.
“F2020” – Avenue Beat
“Lowkey fuck 2020 / I don’t know about everybody else / But I think that I am kinda done / Can we just get to 2021” 
Obviously, we have to start our list off with this certified jam! The ladies killed it with this viral song, personifying exactly how we all felt midway through quarantine. Of course, regardless, it’s such a bop.
“7 Summers”- Morgan Wallen
“Back then you used to love the river / And sippin’ on a mixer with me / Does it ever make you sad to know / That was seven summers ago”
This nostalgic Morgan Wallen tune is quite possibly one of his best to date. Despite the fact that it’s about a past relationship, the song brings back memories of better days and even more innocent times. It is also super catchy and Wallen’s vocals shine on the track.
“Black Like Me”- Mickey Guyton
“It’s a hard life on easy street / Just white painted picket fences far as you can see / If you think we live in the land of the free / You should try to be black like me”
One of the most poignant country songs arguable ever, Mickey Guyton spoke her truth with this powerful song. Making the country music industry and the world pay attention to the societal issues in regards to racism and disenfranchisement, we are so happy that this song was brought to life by the incredible artist.
“I Should Probably Go to Bed” – Dan + Shay
“In a crowd of strangers and lovers / Someone told me that you were coming so / I should probably go to bed”
The irony of this song just cannot be beat. Although it was not about the pandemic, we cannot help but think that we “should probably go to bed,” when we are fatigued from the whole year. Also, the song is just plain great, so it had to make our list.
“We Were Rich”- Runaway June
“I never thought that grass was greener / On the other side of our old chain link fence / Yeah, we were rich”
Runaway June’s latest single, “We Were Rich” was one of our favorites off their last project. The song reminds us to be thankful for what we have, even when times are tough. It is the perfect reminder for us during these last few months and into 2021.
“Six Feet Apart”- Luke Combs
“But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows / And light after dark / Someday when we aren’t six feet apart”
Luke Combs was honestly the king of quarantine, giving fans so much new music. This particular song is lyrically-genius. He reminds us all that the world will not be like this forever, a reminder that we definitely all need.
“Be A Light”- Thomas Rhett + Friends
“In a world full of hate, be a light / When you do somebody wrong, make it right”
Finally, we leave you with this impactful song by Thomas Rhett featuring Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, and Keith Urban. This song is the encouragement we need in our world right now. Even in the darkest of times, there is always good in the world. If you cannot find any, be the light.

As we look forward to a better 2021, we want to thank each and every one of you who show us so much love throughout the year. We are looking forward to the new year and better days together!
