Dan + Shay are cleaning up at all the award shows, and it’s all thanks to Tequila. The song that is, not the agave juice.
At last year’s, ACM’s “Tequila” was a new song and they were asked to sing an abbreviated version of it for the show. A year later, at this year’s show, the song won for Single of the Year and Song of the Year and the boys also picked up the award for Duo of the Year.
And that followed a Grammy win for Best Country Duo /Group Performance for “Tequila” after doing a world-wide attention-grabbing performance.
Simply put, the song has changed their lives. “You kinda don’t realize what’s happening in the moment you know, and you get here and people are like, you’ve accomplished this, you’ve done this… you’ve got this stat to your name. And we’re like, when it’s happening, you don’t realize it’s happening, you’re so focused on what’s going on in the moment and honestly, like we’re all hangin’ out. We’re all at the MGM Grand Arena. We’re at the ACM Awards. We got free tickets to the show, got to see the best country acts in the entire world…this is a dream come true.”
