Dan + Shay . . . Dan + Shay
This album sees US country duo Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney take a laid-back, pop approach to country that in places is almost boyband/commercial RnB in sound. It’s enjoyable and playable.
They sing about everyday things that every one can relate to: opener Alone Together is about two lonely souls in a bar: “I couldn’t help but notice / You were sitting by yourself / Dropping limes in like a Corona / Like you’re trying to get over somebody else / It’s funny how your story / Sounds a little like mine / Because I am at a table / With a bottle peeling labels to pass the time.”
