Country duo Dan + Shay to perform free concert in Myrtle Beach

Up-and-coming country music duo Dan+Shay will perform a free concert in Myrtle Beach at the former pavilion site — between 8th and 9th avenues north downtown — on Tuesday, April 15 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The group, composed of musicians Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, has received wide acclaim and radio play since releasing it’s debut single “19 You + Me” in October.

The song, which logged 12 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and 22 weeks on its Hot Country Songs list, mentions the Myrtle Beach area in it’s lyrics and the group recently filmed a video for the song in Myrtle Beach. The video premiered on CMT in January.

“This concert is a way to give back to the residents of the Myrtle Beach area, who were so accommodating during the filming of the music video,” said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re delighted that Warner Music Nashville chose Myrtle Beach as the filming location. The music video perfectly captured all the sights and sounds from those summer vacations at the beach. “

Dan + Shay’s debut album “Where It All Began” will release on Tuesday and also features the group’s current single “Show You Off” which is currently rising the Billboard Country Charts.

In addition to the public event on April 15, the duo will also perform a private beach concert for one lucky winner, through a contest hosted by Taste of Country (click here for details).
