Dan + Shay Release New Holiday Song, 'Take Me Home For Christmas'

Dan + Shay are spreading Christmas cheer this year with the release of their first original holiday song, "Take Me Home For Christmas." Written by the duo's Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney alongside Andy Albert, Jordan Reynolds, Jordan Schmidt and Mitchell Tenpenny, the track finds the singers hoping to spend the holidays with their new lover.

"Baby, won’t you take me home for Christmas / Show me around your town / Take me where you used to watch the snow come down," the duo sings in the chorus. "All of your traditions / I wanna know them all / You’ll check every box off of my list / If you take me home for Christmas."

Smyers and Mooney turned to Instagram earlier this week to tease the song, sharing a video of themselves in Santa suits. "It’s been a long year, so we decided to get in the holiday spirit early," they captioned the post. "Our brand new original christmas song “take me home for christmas” will be available everywhere at midnight eastern time tonight, and we hope that it brings a bit of feel-good into your world. hit the link in our bio/story to pre-save. this is going to be a fun era, just sayin’...🎄🎄"

"This is our first original Christmas song, and we had a blast writing and recording it," Smyers said in a statement. "It was cool to get in the holiday spirit a little early this year because I think we could all use some extra positivity and cheer. Our fans have asked for Christmas music every year, so I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did making it."

Dan + Shay's new Christmas song follows the release of their new single, "I Should Probably Go To Bed." This week, the duo will take the stage at the 2020 CMA Awards alongside Justin Bieber for a performance of their three-time nominated hit collaboration, "10,000 Hours."

Tune in to the CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 11, at 8PM ET on ABC. A complete list of nominees can be seen here.
