Country duo Dan + Shay has done it again! This duo has broken records upon records with their self-titled album, as well as their hit songs “Tequila” and “Speechless.”

The duo, comprised of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, were performing significantly well at the charts for them to merit the award. They also led the country artist pack with the most nominations under their belt.

The duo was also slated to perform at the awards show, converting their hit song “Speechless” into a dreamy romantic duet with Tori Kelly.

Dan + Shay was also nominated for the Billboard Achievement award but had graciously lost to pop superstar Ariana Grande.

Kenny Chesney is considered as one of the most successful touring artists.  In 2018, he ranked as one of the highest-grossing touring artists based on the most recent box-office counts reported from his Trip Around the Sun Tour.

Beating out Shania Twain and Luke Bryan, Chesney has been doing great with his tour last year, as well as his brand new tour, Song for the Saints 2019.

Currently, Chesney kicked off his current tour in support of his latest studio album. He started his leg in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum! Center.

After a year full of stadium tours and amphitheaters, Chesney was determined to scale things back and bring fans a more intimate show.
