Dan + Shay’s Third Album Reaches The Pinnacle Of Art And Life With Marriage-Related Themes

In today’s popular music, we tend to hear basically the same songs and themes reproduced, to different beats, with slightly varying melodies, but largely built of similar substance. Dan + Shay, one of the trendiest acts of modern time, can be said to fit this mold. Many call them “Country Pop” which I think is an accurate description of the vast majority of what their three albums feature, with tunes that take me back to fast and free college days, into that, angsty period of early adulthood, and finally to the point of stability and marriage. Most of their tracks are full of lust and speak positively of romances, relationships, and the like, but I have found that their deepest contributions are those that address how it feels to break up. These tend to be slower, allow for a greater use of the voice, and are even easy for one to sing along. The faster tracks whip by in a rush that is meant to mimic a speeding car with the windows down, but present difficulties when trying to follow along. Dan + Shay, (said as Dan and Shay) two guys from Nashville, have a sound that reminds me starkly of Brian White, a mid-90’s artist whom some might also classify as Country Pop, and of course Rascal Flatts, who had their biggest hits in the early 2000’s. While I would imagine so-called Country purists might not have as much an appreciation for this sound it certainly helps to expand the appeal of Country music among the general public, and especially those who expressly do not enjoy the normal, twangier version. Their third, self-titled album reaches the pentacle of life progress as well as use of voice, most notably in the wildly popular song “Tequila” which compares a lost woman to that particular alcoholic beverage. Aside from that, there are many other tracks on this album that I enjoy. Dan + Shay take us on a ride into marriage, its beauty and sometimes its struggles. By using a rotating team of writers, they manage to approach similar topics with slightly varied takes throughout.
