In premiere ceremony for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Dan and Shay took home their very first Grammy for their performance of “Tequila.”

A very happy Dan Symers said at the podium, “Oh my goodness my heart is beating out of my chest.  We had no expectation to win this. So many people to thank…” After thanking their team and family, Dan said, “It’s a good thing about Nashville and country music we are family and we all root for each other.”  Shay added at the end, “Thank you so much, this is an incredible honor.”

Before walking up to get the award the duo hugged fellow nominees and country music duo The Brothers Osborne.
