Anyone else ready for summer?? “19 You + Me” is what summer sounds like: flash pan romances, dancing, and sipping in the sand. This sweet little country tune is the first single from new comers to the country world Dan + Shay.
Their career has been as fast as summer usually feels, writing their first song together in 2012 and being signed within the first year. But hearing their voices makes it easy to understand why they got picked up so fast. Dan + Shay’s sound is a nod to the Rascall Flatts or Hunter Hayes. No wonder the first song they wrote was recorded by Rascall Flatts and they’ll be opening for Hunter Hayes tour this coming summer.
I’ve become a bit obsessed with this new set of country writers like Hunter Hayes, Danielle Bradbery, and Kacey Musgraves. Their writing takes the country style, creating detailed stories in less than 3 minutes, but they’re not afraid to lean into a poppy tune.
I admit “19 You + Me” is a little cheesy, but isn’t every love story at 19 years old?
For your listening pleasure… Dan + Shay
And don’t miss their debut album Where It All Began out April 1!
