Dan and Shay Reveal Travis Scott Dream Collaboration Ahead of Grammy Awards
Dan + Shay are set to take the 2019 Grammy Awards stage to perform their platinum-certified hit "Tequila." The duo are nominated for Best Country Song and Best Duo/Group Performance for "Tequila."
After the duo rehearsed their performance, Grammy.com caught up with Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney. Asked who they're most excited to see, the answer was easy.
"Man, there are so many amazing performances that are going to be happening. We're huge Travis Scott fans, and I think he's performing. That's going to be awesome," Smyers says.
"I tried to learn the verse one time and it's pretty sick, so I think a collaboration is inevitable in the future, us and Travis Scott," adds Mooney. "I think it would work good, just maybe get him on 'Tequila' or something. Or just drink tequila with him, that would be fine."
Fans have already asked Mooney on Twitter to perform the cover of Scott's single, and he's game.
"You never know, we'd always be down, especially with Travis Scott. We're really hammering on this Travis Scott thing." Smyers jokes, asking Scott to look them up online.
Mooney was all smiles, even joking that he was going to be fashion forward wearing chaps on stage for their performance. "Yeah, I'm going to be wearing chaps. No, I think I'm going to be wearing Burberry, all Burberry this year."
Smyers claimed he thinks he's wearing Givenchy.
The duo are bringing their lovely wives to the 2019 Grammy Awards. Mooney adds that he's leaving his son, Asher James Mooney, at home.
"He's going to be watching. He's going to be probably wondering why Dad's on TV. I don't think he's put that together yet, so that will be good," Mooney says.
The 2019 Grammy Awards will broadcast live on CBS on Sunday (Feb. 10), hosted by Alicia Keys. The Grammy Premiere Ceremony will stream live via Grammy.com earlier in the afternoon.
