Dan And Shay Excited About J.R.’s Baby News
We got a call today from Dan and Shay and they are excited about J.R’s baby news. They also talked about their new album, song and the tour they are getting ready to head out on. We first talked about J.R. and his new baby. Shay commented on the picture we posted of J.R. holding his baby. Shay said he looked a little scared and that he might have to learn how to change his own diaper.
Stuff like J.R. having a baby, the boys now having families and growing into bigger houses is exactly where they are in their lives at the moment and that is why their new single is about stuff just like J.R. is going through.
The boys just got done celebrating their 10th number one song with “Save Me The Trouble“, also off the Bigger Houses album. This album came at a time when the boys were just getting back to being a duo. They had spent a long time apart and both of them admit they didn’t know what the future of Dan + Shay was going to be. After a night of “talking” they did what they do best. They wrote music together and that is where the album Bigger Houses came from.
Bigger Houses Song
The song “Bigger Houses” was born from a conversation Abby Smyers, the wife of Dan Smyers, had with Andy Albert, a writing collaborator, and Emily, Andy’s wife.
In an article from Billboard, Andy and Emily had just bought a dream home with a big yard and all the things everyone dreams of having. The conversation continued about how people are always looking forward to what is ahead, and sometimes stop appreciating what they have. The two confessed that they couldn’t afford a meal when we moved to Nashville, no could they afford heat or AC in the house. They realized that they have come a really long way.
They jotted down the phrase “Bigger Houses” and brought it into a writing session. Abby even said the line, Happiness isn’t found in bigger houses and they knew that was a song they wanted to write that day.
Dan + Shay are getting ready to hit the road on the Heartbreak On The Map Tour and hinted that they would be coming to Tampa. Launa even mentioned that since Dan’s parents live here, they should probably stop in Tampa.
So, look for information to be announced soon on Dan + Shay. And don’t forget to check out the album Bigger Houses.
