Dan + Shay's Shay Mooney is a co-writer on the brand new Rascal Flatts single "Back To Life." Shay tells us the song was born out of a first writing session with an up-and-coming singer/songwriter whose career is definitely on the move. ["That was a really cool thing to be a part of. I wrote that with a few buddies of mine. Niko Moon was one of the writers on that song and him and I knew each other from Atlanta. He moved here to pursue as a writer and an artist and he's actually in the band Sir Roosevelt with Zac Brown, and (he's) just a super talented writer. We've been trying to writer forever and finally got together, us and Cary Barlowe, and we were able to pull that song together. It was a really fun write and we've been out on the road with those guys for a while now this summer and we were just playing different songs for them and that one jumped out to them and they cut it and it turned out really, really cool, so I'm excited about that."] SOUNDCUE (:33 OC: . . . excited about that.)
Dan + Shay's own single, "Speechless," is a Top 10 and climbing on the country charts.
The duo continue on tour with Chris Young, playing shows this weekend in Lancaster, PA and Syracuse, NY.
