Dan + Shay took home their first Vocal Duo of the Year award from the CMAs tonight.
Dan told us, “I don’t even feel like this is real. I feel like I’m living in a dream right now. We worked so hard on this music to be recognized by our peers is amazing. It feels just as good as the day we met.”
Shay added when asked about the duo’s pop success, including their recent collaboration with Justin Bieber, “We are not trying to chase anything, we are trying to tell a story with our music and the more people who hear it, that’s great with us.”
As for Dan’s ever-growing beard: “We’ve had pretty good luck since I was growing my hair out and my wife likes it so it’s all good.”
