Warner Music Nashville duo Dan + Shay celebrated a milestone evening on Sunday, taking home their first Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance during the pre-telecast portion of the evening, for their smash hit “Tequila.” Then the duo’s Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney performed “Tequila” on the live telecast. The polished rendering became the most-Shazamed of the evening, and “Tequila” shot to No. 3 on the all-genre iTunes chart.
The track has earned nearly 400 million streams, making it the most-streamed country song in 2018.
“Thank you to the Recording Academy, everybody who voted for us, all the incredible artists in our category. That’s the beautiful thing about Nashville and country music – we are all family,” said Smyers upon accepting the award, adding, “Thank you to our co-writers Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon, [we] couldn’t do this without a great song.”
