Dan + Shay were up for four CMA awards last week, but didn’t win any of them. Dan took to social media over the weekend to tell us his thoughts about it.

As artists, we pour our hearts and souls into creating music, and we become very emotionally sensitive to judgment, especially when it is as public as a nationally televised awards show. When it doesn’t go our way, we tend to lose perspective of the things that do go our way. I spent the day allowing myself to be sad (I’m human), but now, I’m reflecting upon what an incredible year it has been, surrounded by equally as incredible people. Like we say in the song “Keeping Score”, I’m trying to better myself by appreciating the moment, and spending less time comparing myself to others. I’m proud of what we and our team have accomplished in 2018, and will work even harder for our fans in 2019. And I’m also proud that I get to stand on stage with the best singer in the world (@shaymooney). Much love to all who have been there for us on this journey. We’re just getting started.
