Take Me Home for Christmas

Album: single release only (2020)


  • This R&B-inspired country number finds Shay Mooney pining for an invitation to spend the holidays with his new love interest. He longs to meet her high school friends, go caroling and learn her traditions instead of spending Christmas alone by his fire at home.
  • Dan Smyers had a hand in penning the song along with "Drunk Me" singer Mitchell Tenpenny and Nashville songwriters Andy Albert, Jordan Reynolds, and Jordan Schmidt.
  • Dan + Shay are no strangers to Christmas music. In 2014 they cut a version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which peaked at #17 on the Adult Contemporary chart. They've also performed other festive songs such as "O Holy Night" live.
