FCCLA Concert: Dan + Shay

Wednesday, July 5, 2017



Get the hottest ticket in town - a special private concert performed by Dan + Shay exclusively for FCCLA NLC attendees! Meeting in December of 2012, Dan and Shay quickly hit it off with their musical similarities. The two began writing together and from those sessions their relationship grew to include performing together. From there, the duo discovered an infectious original sound all their own, mixing country rock/pop seamlessly throughout intimate power-ballads and stadium-worthy hits including their recent No. 1 hit single "From the Ground Up" off their sophomore album Obsessed.
