Warner Music Nashville’s Dan + Shay raised glasses with their label family yesterday (Feb. 21) to celebrate their first-ever Grammy award win. The timing was fitting as they also received six ACM Awards nominations this week and tied as the most-nominated artist overall, with Dan Smyers earning an additional four nominations for his work as a songwriter and producer.

Chairman & CEO, John Esposito surprised the duo with a 2x Platinum plaque for “Tequila” and a Platinum plaque for “Speechless.” “Speechless” spent four weeks atop the country radio charts and has sold over 1.7 million track equivalents, including more than 230 million streams. The romantic tune follows the Grammy-winning smash “Tequila,” which has accumulated over 550 million streams internationally.

With the two chart-topping hits, Dan + Shay boast two of the five most-streamed country songs of 2018, and are the only duo ever to hold the top two spots on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart simultaneously for eight consecutive weeks.
