With their romantic new ballad, “From the Ground Up,” written about the lifelong romances of their grandparents, it’s not too surprising that Dan+Shay sound like they’d probably make good valentines. Shay in particular isn’t shy to show his thoughtful side.
“For me, and this is the romantic in me. This is what I would say to a girl: ‘Baby, everyday is Valentine’s Day.”
But he admits he’s skeptical of the commercialism of the holiday. “I think it’s super-hyped. I get it, but I don’t know…I’m a let’s-hang-out-together, I’m a spend-some-time-with-ya kinda guy. I don’t want them to spend any money on me.”
“Sip a little wine with ya?” Dan adds, interjecting some humor.
“Yeah! Sip a lil wine wid ya!” Shay laughs. “I think it’s more of, you know spending time with them. But I think everyday should be Valentine’s Day. It should always be that sweet and awesome.”
“That’s a great stand-alone quote right there,” Dan says, mocking his musical partner ever so slightly. “Shay Mooney: ‘Everyday should be Valentine’s Day!'”
