Dan + Shay Leave Fans ‘Speechless’ With Harmonies on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ [Watch]
Dan + Shay brought their engaging live show to Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night (July 31), performing their most recent singles "Speechless" and "Tequila." The country duo took over the late night show's outdoor stage in Hollywood, where hundreds of country fans assembled to sing along.
Shay Mooney captivated on lead vocals, while Dan Smyers stood beside him on acoustic guitar and provided additional harmonies on their most recent single, "Speechless." The stripped-down track was written about each singer's wife.
“Speechless is definitely inspired by our wives,” Mooney shared ahead of its release. “It’s very cool to release songs that are not only stories of our lives but also very personal experiences. Seeing our wives for the first time in their wedding dresses was absolutely an unforgettable and we talked about that while writing the song and bringing that moment to life in this song.”
Later, the duo performed their recent No. 1 hit, "Tequila." Accompanied by a keyboard player, two guitarists and a drummer, the nostalgic tune highlights Mooney's vocals and the duo's songwriting ability:
Currently, fans can catch Dan + Shay on the road with Rascal Flatts as part of the group's Back to Us Tour. Once that tour wraps, they'll join Chris Young for the fall leg of his Losing Sleep Tour, starting in October.
Next January, Dan + Shay will head overseas for their six-date UK tour which kicks off on Jan. 17.
