Whether you are a fan of country music or a fan of pop tunes, Dan + Shay have something for you.

The Grammy-award winning duo is nominated for four CMA awards during the 2019 ceremony held on November 13. Just ahead of the big night, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney joined Cody Alan in the CMT Radio studio to talk about the quadruple honor.

"You've got Single, Song, Album, and Duo nominations! Which one means the most?" asked Cody.

"Album is cool, it's a tough category, always. I mean they all are," shared Dan. "We went zero for four at the CMA's last year, so we aren't counting on anything."

"HEY, CONFIDENCE!" shouted Cody with a smile.

"Hey! I'm just a realist," shrugged the "Summer Of 19 You & Me" singer in jest.

"It was a bummer," Dan continued candidly, "I mean, we were hurt for a couple of days. But it is what it is. We are all competitive. It's an honor to be nominated, and just to be invited to these things means we are doing something right. It means our fans are reacting to the music. It would be nice to take something home."

"I think duo would be really cool. Shay and I are in this every single day, and we are working our tails off. Duo is a really strong category!"
