Dan + Shay are using some of their concert proceeds to help those affected by the recent floods in the Midwest. During Thursday evening’s (March 21) show in Omaha, Nebraska, the recent Grammy winners revealed they would donate proceeds from their merchandise sales to the American Red Cross.

“At the show, it was spontaneous,” the duo’s Dan Smyers said. “We met some of the people that have been affected and are hurting from this massive disaster, and we knew that we needed to give back. Just before the end of the show, we announced it from the stage. We’re thrilled to play a small part in helping rebuild the community.”

The floods followed a recent winter storm which brought snow and wind to the Rockies and Plains regions of the United States. Flooding has impacted areas of Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota.

Dan + Shay, whose songs “Tequila” and “Speechless” have been mainstays on the country sales and radio charts, will launch the second leg of their sold-out headlining Dan + Shay The Tour next weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. The tour runs through April, leading up to the duo joining Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour in June.
