ABOUT DAN + SHAY
Nashville newcomers Dan + Shay became the most added new duo of 2013 at country radio with their breakout debut hit "19 You + Me." Rising into the Top 20 on the Country Chart after only 13 weeks, the track was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton. The nostalgic feel-good single is the first track from their forthcoming album, due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, PA native, and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, AR, the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers' house in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers alike. Written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Orton, the duo are putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled debut album. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Hunter Hayes "We're Not Invisible" and Blake Shelton "Ten Times Crazier 2014" tours.

Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels
Or anyone who just dares to be different

And you've been trying for so long
To find out where you place is
But in their narrow minds
There's no room for anyone who dates to do something different
Oh, but listen for a minute

Trust the one
Who's been where you are wishing all it was
Sticks and stones
Those words cut deep but they don't mean
You're all alone
And you're not invisible
Hear me out
There's so much more to life than what you're feeling now
Someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be
Invisible, oh invisible

So your confidence is quiet
To them quiet looks like weakness
But you don't have to fight it
Because you're strong enough to win without a war, yeah
Every heart has a rhythm
Let yours beat out so loudly
That everyone can hear it
Yeah promise you don't need to hide it anymore
Oh and never be afraid of doing something different
Dare to be something more

Trust the one
Who's been where you are wishing all it was
Sticks and stones
Those words cut deep but they don't mean
You're all alone
And you're not invisible
Hear me out
There's so much more to life than what you're feeling now
Someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be
Invisible
These labels that they give you
Is cause they don't understand
If you look past this moment
You'll see you've got a friend
Waving a flag for who you are
And all you're gonna do
Yeah so here's to you and here's to anyone who's ever felt invisible

And you're not invisible
Hear me out, there's so much more to life than what you're feelin now
Yeah someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be
Invisible
It'll be invisible
