NASHVILLE, Tenn.  – With a sound Rolling Stone describes as a “nostalgic tale of heartbreak and regret,” Dan + Shay’s
latest smash single “Tequila” has caught the attention of fans and
critics alike. Now, the Platinum-selling, chart-topping duo will share a
taste of the song on a national stage with their return performance on Ellen this Thursday, March 1.

In just six weeks “Tequila” has garnered over 18 million on-demand
streams and has already dipped into the Top 40 at country radio,
impressively hitting No. 2 in consumption per spin. The reflective
single has also taken over on SiriusXM’s The Highway, where it has been
the No. 1 most played song for five weeks in a row. Billboard
praised “Tequila” for adverting expectations with its “brooding piano
chords” and “ethereal shimmering sounds,” declaring it “ambitious” and
“multilayered.” Taste of Country applauded the “strong sense of
melody and even stronger vocals,” calling the emotion conveyed within
the song “vivid and full of color.”

Immediately upon the single’s release in January it ascended to No. 1 on
the iTunes U.S. Country Singles chart and earned a spot as a multi-day
Top 10 on the All-Genre chart. Within a month and a half, “Tequila”
already boasts 70,000 tracks sold in the U.S. alone – and has quickly
begun spilling into countries across the globe. The contemplative tune
hit No. 1 on the iTunes country charts in the U.K. and Ireland, and it
reached No. 4 in Australia. “Tequila” is also currently featured on a
number of international and local Spotify playlists including
Nashville’s Worldwide Hot 50 and Hot Country, among others.

In addition to this latest musical success, the breakout pair has
celebrated countless milestones throughout the first five years of their
career. With hundreds of concerts and worldwide tours already behind
them, Dan + Shay have tallied more than 572 million on-demand streams
and sold 940,000 album equivalents. The first new country duo
in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, they recently earned their first RIAA Gold album certification for Where It All Began. Their sophomore release Obsessed produced two No. 1 smash hit singles, Platinum-certified “From The Ground Up” and Gold-certified “How Not To.”

Dan + Shay are currently in the studio working on their
highly-anticipated third studio album, expected for release later this
year. Fans can catch the duo live this summer as they join Rascal Flatts
on their Back To Us Tour.
