Dan + Shay Celebrate No. 1 Single, “From The Ground Up” by Announcing Fall Headlining Tour
Obsessed Tour to hit 15 cities across the U.S. and Canada this November and December
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 22, 2016) �=0� Earlier today, “From The Ground Up,” the impactful first song released from Dan + Shay’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, Obsessed, hit No. 1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Charts. So what better way to celebrate than for the Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville Platinum-selling recording duo to announce the Obsessed Tour. Earning its name from the title of their hit album and its title track, which was directly inspired by fans, the headlining tour will also feature special guest singer/songwriter Walker Hayes. The Obsessed Tour kicks off Nov. 10 in Denver, Colorado and will hit 15 cities across the U.S. and Canada through Dec. 17, including their first ever tour stop in Honolulu, Hawaii.
“We have been so humbled by the response to our new album, and can’t wait to perform live for our fans this fall,” said Dan Smyers. “Our fans inspired the title of the Obsessed album, so it was only fitting to name the tour after the album.”
“We are also so grateful to everyone for help making ‘From The Ground Up’ No. 1,” added Shay Mooney. “This is such a personal song for both of us, and we are thrilled that people have loved the song as much as we do.”
The tour is the perfect ending to what has been a monumental year for Dan + Shay. Earlier this year, the duo released their second album, Obsessed, whose first single, “From The Ground Up,” was an immediate hit. The pair debuted the song on Good Morning America and has since performed it on Live With K= elly, Dancing With the Stars, The Bachelorette and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The song marks the second No. 1 for the duo in less than a year, and also the first No. 1 song produced by Smyers, along with Scott Hendricks.

Racking up more than 42 million YouTube views, the pair has impressively sold more than two million digital tracks and more than 500,000 album equivalents to date, including 200 million streams. They have previously earned three consecutive nominations for ACM “Vocal Duo of the Year” and two nominations for CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Countdown Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards.

Released on May 3, 2016, Walker Hayes’ 8 Tracks (Vol. 1): Good S**t pooled together some of the Alabama native’s best work tapes from songwriting sessions. These raw productions exploded online, quickly garnering placement on Spotify’s Viral Chart and catching the ear of syndicated radio host Bobby Bones, who played the song “Shades” — declaring it the song of the summer — and the powerful “Beer in the Fridge.” On Aug. 19, 2016, Hayes released 8 Tracks (Vol. 2): Break The Internet, and features poignant tracks like “Comedian” and “Halloween.” Hayes is cur rently in the studio working on his full-length album with songwriter/producer Shane McAnally (Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves).
56,292 for Show That Puts Him in Top 10 N.J. Stadium Draws Ever
Holmdel, N.J. (Sunday, Aug. 21, 2016) – “Oh, there you are,” said Kenny Chesney, standing onstage at MetLife Stadium, pointing into the far part of the crowd. “There you are.” Pausing for a moment, he took the 56,292 fans in, before announcing, “This is the most beautiful sight! Music and songs are the most powerful things we have in our lives… Just look around.”
With a few more words, he invited the full-capacity crowd to sing along – something they’d been doing all night anyway – then launched into 2004’s “I Go Back.” The crowd’s response was deafening as they sang along to the song-invoking smash about the way music watermarks people’s lives.
For Chesney, approaching the end of 2016’s Spread the Love Tour – complete with 14 major stadiums, it marks his love affair with the No Shoes Nation. With two hours of hits – from the truly vintage “Don’t Happen Twice” and “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” to the six-week No. 1s “When The Sun Goes Down” and “Summertime” to the brand new “Noise” – it was a truly loud love fest in Jersey that saw the crowd sing along to every song, almost louder than the headliner.
“That audience felt so honest, raw – and almost right there with us onstage,” Chesney marveled. “It was like walking into a buzz saw – in a really good way – they just cut right through us.”
New York metro’s passion for the songwriter/superstar rivals Boston’s in the way they turn out, sing out and throw their hands into the air in a way that truly drives the band. After last night’s show – his fifth at MetLife Stadium – took his accumulated attendance to 279,874 making him the only country act in the Top 10 Performers in the MetLife/Giants stadium’s history, starting five decades ago. That ranking places him in the company of Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Bon Jovi, U2, the Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, Billy Joel and Elton John.
“You don’t think about stuff like that when you’re up there,” Chesney said. “You’re drinking it in, letting it wash over you. They were so loud, so there. Like I told them during the show – ‘It’s why this place is so special… why we keep coming back… year after year. Because I’ll be sitting at Thanksgiving dinner, and I’ll still hear the love in this stadium.’ That’s true…”
Chanting “KennyKenny! KennyKenny!” after the 8-time Entertainer of the Year left the stage, the crowd was rewarded with a grinding drum solo from Sean Paddock that saw guitarists Kenny Greenberg and Clayton Mitchell twist the melody line of “Don’t Happen Twice” around. Walking on stage to another seismic eruption of cheers, Chesney lifted his tumbler to the crowd before delivering an embrace-the-moment rendition of his 2001 chart-topper.
With “Setting The World On Fire,” his duet with P!NK, blazing up the Country Radio and Sales charts, Chesney’s fans’ fervor remains unabated. Sitting at No. 12 at Billboard, the song that highlights the immediacy of the moment when like turns to love was also Chesney’s biggest first week of downloads ever – and it’s still only three weeks old. As Chesney heads into his tour’s final weekend at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough , Mass. where the No Shoes Nation was named, it has certainly been “one of those summers” for the man The Wall Street Journal deemed “the King of the Road.”
