Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney first met at a party at the formers'' house in Nashville on December 7, 2012.
"I was living in a terrible house; it was the worst house of all time. I found it on Craigslist for $100 a month when I first moved to town. No locks on the door, no heat, no AC. It was rough," Smyers recalled to The Boot
. "Shay came over with a buddy. We started singing together, singing cover songs and making stuff up on the spot … It was about four in the morning, and we were like, 'We should write together.'"
"A couple hours later, we woke up and wrote a song," Smyers continued. "The first song we wrote got put on hold."
