  • Dan + Shay are a Country duo comprising Pennsylvania native Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, who hails from Arkansas. Smyers was previously part of a duo called Bonaventure, whilst Mooney was on rapper T-Pain's Nappy Boy Entertainment label for a time before moving to Nashville. The pair met in Nashville in December 2013 and hit it off immediately. They began writing together and quickly turned into performing as a duo.
  • This song about a short summer week spent with a new lover is the lead single from their debut album. It was co-written by the pair and Danny Orton (Rascal Flatts' "Stand").
  • The song had 59 first week adds at Country radio, the biggest first week by a new duo in Country Aircheck History.
  • Speaking with Radio.com, Shay explained how that song came together. "We were sitting around and talking," he said. "We wanted to write a love song and use our own personal experience to tell that story. We were just sharing our stories about meeting girls in the summer and that summer love that you had."
  • Where It All Began landed at #1 on Top Country Albums a week after its release. Dan + Shay were the first ever duo to debut at the top of that chart with their first record.
