Nashville stars are all lined up to join the Friday night party on Audacy!
LISTEN NOW: Dan + Shay join the Friday Night Takeover
Join hosts Rob + Holly as they kick the weekend off with good vibes, the best music and special guests, Dan + Shay! Listen on your favorite Audacy Country station.
Dan + Shay are two names everyone in Country music knows. With multiple Grammy awards, several #1’s, and a spot on the hottest tour of the summer with Kenny Chesney, it’s no secret the duo’s Shay Mooney and Dan Smyers have made it to the big time.
While others may know their names, Dan + Shay remain humble and surround themselves with family that keep their feet on the ground — two key members of that being Shay Mooney’s young sons.
“My oldest is 5 [Asher] and my youngest is 2 [Ames] and Asher, he doesn’t really get it,” Mooney said of his son’s grasp on what he does for a living. “He’s come out to a couple of shows and he’s watched, I just don’t think it’s really registered. [He thinks] ‘Yeah, everybody’s dad does this every once in a while.”
According to Asher, Mooney is just “Dad” and Shay hopes to keep it that way for as long as possible.
“You know what, if I’m known as the guy who takes them to do fun things, I will take that ten times out of ten,” said Mooney. “I’d like them to not know, ever, what I do. It’s pretty awesome to just be Dad to them.”
