NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After selling out the first shows on their 2016 Obsessed Tour, Dan + Shay decided to keep the good times going by adding 24 more dates across the U.S. and Canada through spring of 2017. The “velvet-voiced duo” (Rolling Stone Country), have announced that they will also be bringing special guests Bailey Bryan (GRAMMY’s Artist of Tomorrow, Rolling Stone’s "Artists You Need to Know” and The Bobby Bones Show’s "Class of 2017” artist) and Jackie Lee (named one of Bobby Bones' "Class of 2017" and a CMT "17 for 2017 LISTEN UP" artist) along for the ride in 2017.

The newest single off of their 2016 release, Obsessed, is “How Not To,” a “pure slice of radio ear candy” (Taste of Country) for which the duo recently released a powerful new video. The track that laments a hard-to-forget relationship and is written by Adam Hambrick, Paul DiGiovanni and Kevin Bard, is at radio now and quickly climbing the charts.

Dan + Shay spent the summer on Darius Rucker’s Good For a Good Time Tour, where they “glistened with energy and excitement as they played melodic new tracks” (Tampa Bay Times).

ABOUT DAN + SHAY
Dan + Shay's sophomore album Obsessed debuted earlier this year and follows their 2014 Where It All Began, which made them the first new country duo in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. The album included the debut single, “19 You + Me” which earned RIAA Platinum certification, and their first No. 1 single, “Nothin’ Like You,” which earned RIAA Gold certification. Racking up more than 60 million YouTube views, the pair has impressively sold more than 2.2 million digital tracks and more than 620,000 album equivalents to date, including 240 million streams. Their first single off Obsessed, "From The Ground Up" earned RIAA Gold certification and marked their second to hit the top of the charts. They have earned three consecutive nominations for both ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Count-down Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards.

ABOUT BAILEY BRYAN
"Prepare to fall in love with Country music’s newest leading lady” (People) Bailey Bryan, critics warn, even ahead of the official release of her debut single “Own It” to Country radio late this month. Bryan has sparked early attention, landing on selective “ones-to-watch" lists ranging from Rolling Stone’s "Artists You Need to Know" to The Bobby Bones Show’s "Class of 2017.” As one of only three all-genre artists selected for GRAMMY's Artist of Tomorrow initiative, Bryan’s “Own It” was chosen by Spotify for their “Wild Country” playlist and was one of only two Country tracks on their “New Music Friday” playlist upon release. Slacker, Huffington Post, Perez Hilton, Sounds Like Nashville and Taste of Country have also all showered Bryan with early accolades. With her innovative new music video for “Own It,”  she perfectly supplements her infectious, danceable first single that is for anyone with self-doubt, awkward moments and imperfections.  The 18-year-old's venture into the music world began in her small hometown of Sequim, Wash. where she grew up singing on the street in front of her favorite taco stand.

ABOUT JACKIE LEE
Influenced by classic country singers like Faron Young and Keith Whitley as well as popular music icons like Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 – Jackie Lee has carved out a distinctive style, benchmarked by his big, soulful vocals. The young Broken Bow Records artist has earned a plethora of accolades for his brand of authentic country music including being named one of Billboard's "10 Hot Country Artists To Watch;" a member of Bobby Bones' "Class of 2017;" a CMT “17 for 2017” LISTEN UP artist and one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 Artists You Should Know." Jackie’s emotionally charged new single “Getting Over You” was co-written and produced by Paul DiGiovanni (of Boys Like Girls). Rolling Stone Country declares that Jackie’s “Getting Over You” is “poised to be his breakthrough moment.” For more information visit www.JackieLee.com.
