Dan + Shay Bring ‘Speechless’ to 2019 CMA Awards
Dan + Shay turned in another stellar performance of their hit "Speechless" at the 2019 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 13).
Backed by an orchestra that put a whole new twist on the song, Dan + Shay's sweet harmonies were on display. Basking in a white spotlight and donning white and black tuxes, Shay Mooney and Dan Smyers delivered the song with precision and grace. And once again, we were all reminded just why this country music duo is making such an impact on the genre.
Written by Smyers and Mooney with Jordan Reynolds, "Speechless" was inspired by the artists' own wedding days, to their wives Abby and Hannah, respectively. "We were talking about that first time we actually saw our wives in their wedding dresses and how crazy that moment was for us. That was the sentiment we were going for," Mooney says.
