Dan + Shay Release Officially Christmas

Officially Christmas is the newest Christmas song released by Dan + Shay and it is everything you want in a bouncy, infectiously cheerful Christmas song:

The duo continues to spread Christmas cheer with this release after having shared the Amazon Original, “Pick Out A Christmas Tree,” earlier this month. The currently nominated and reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year is also set to perform at this year’s awards on Wednesday, November 10th at 8pm ET on ABC.

Dan + Shay lit-up the holiday charts last year with their first-ever original holiday songs, “Take Me Home For Christmas” and “Christmas Isn’t Christmas,” earning nearly 100 million global streams combined.

Take Me Home For Christmas,” which was the second most played holiday song during Christmas week in 2020 according to Country Aircheck, became the No. 3 All-Genre Holiday Release of the year when ranked by US on-demand streams, with “Christmas Isn’t Christmas” landing within the Top 20 as well.

The pair’s latest album, Good Things, made history on day one when it became the first country album in the streaming era to achieve RIAA Gold certification at release. Less than three weeks and 800,000 album equivalents later, Good Things has also earned more than one billion streams in the US alone and nearly 2.5 billion streams worldwide.

The album has already yielded three No. 1 singles, including the 4x Platinum-certified “10,000 Hours (with Justin Bieber),” the Platinum-certified “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” and most recently, the Gold-certified “Glad You Exist.” Their new single, “Steal My Love,” continues their momentum, complete with a blockbuster, bank-robbing, crowd dance video.

The pair also recently re-ignited their undeniable live star power for multiple capacity crowds on their massive headline Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour, presented by AEG Presents. They’ve performed to sold out venues across the country since the tour’s September 9th launch in Greenville, SC, including New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden, the Staples Center in LA and Philadelphia’s Wels Fargo Center among others.

The explosive tour features Elektra Records’ The Band Camino and labelmate Ingrid Andress on all 30+ dates. The (Arena) Tour had major success when it kicked off in March 2020, selling out three consecutive shows, including two back-to-back in Nashville, TN.
