Dan + Shay Are the 2019 ACM Awards Duo of the Year
Dan + Shay are the 2019 ACM Duo of the Year. The award was presented to the pair during the 2019 ACM Awards ceremony, held in Las Vegas, Nev., at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday night (April 7).
The pair were visibly shaken as they took the stage to accept their award, and bandmate Dan Smyers' voice trembled as he expressed his thanks. "This is such an incredible category to be a part of, Duo of the Year," he shared from the podium.
"This is the the most incredible night of my life, other than when I married my wife and when my kid was born," added Shay Mooney.
Dan + Shay are on the track to superstardom thanks to their most recent studio album, a self-titled project. Their singl,e "Tequila," especially, has been racking up awards nominations, after becoming a crossover hit following its release. In January, they won Best Country Duo / Group Performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The 2019 ACMs have marked a banner night for Dan + Shay, who already took home the title of Song of the Year as well as Single of the Year, both awards for "Tequila." They also performed during Sunday evening's ceremony alongside Kelly Clarkson.
