Nashville, TN (CelebrityAccess) – Always putting fans first, ACM “Duo of the Year” nominees DAN + SHAY released the behind-the-scenes video for their new single “Tequila,” praised by Billboard as “ambitious and multilayerd.” Watch here. The video arrived last night as a surprise for fans after Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney learned their official music video reached over five million views since its release less than one month ago. Starring notable deaf activist and actor Nyle DiMarco and conceptualized by Smyers alongside director Patrick Tracy, the “Tequila” music video is “a shot of something strong that’ll hit you right in the heart,” according to Taste of Country.

“Tequila” is currently featured on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist, reaching over 19 million followers and being streamed more than 5.4 million times this week. Since its release in January, the single has tallied over 31million on-demand streams and continues to be one of the Top 20 most-streamed country songs this year. Smyers co-wrote “Tequila” with Jordan Reynolds and Nicholle Gaylon and the duo performed it earlier this month on Ellen.
The platinum selling duo have seen multiple singles reach the top of the charts including “From the Ground Up,” “Nothin’ Like You” and “How Not To.” Their current single is following suit, quickly ascending through the Top 30 on the airplay charts.
“Tequila” serves as the first single from Dan + Shay’s forthcoming third studio album, expected for release later this year. The song, described by One Country as an “aching, reflective heartbreak tune,” has become a staple in their live set with fans singing every word back to them. Continuing their momentum, Dan + Shay will join Rascal Flatts this summer on their Back To Us Tour.
