Dan + Shay reached the top 10 with their first single. Then they came up just shy of the top 20 with their next single. This time they’re looking to get back in the top 10 and potentially even higher. After a first listen I think they have a song with a good chance of becoming a hit.
Nothin’ Like You – Dan + Shay
It seems like country music has always had at least one act that was kind of soft rock and adult contemporary. For a while in the ’80s and ’90s it was Restless Heart. Then in the ’00s Rascal Flatts kind of dominated with the sound and now I would say that Dan + Shay can fit right in that groove and they do it well.
The one slant on things for Dan + Shay is that they’re really good at singing about young love and those feelings you get when you’re young or in a new love.
That’s what this song is about. The guy is infatuated with the girl he’s with and that’s kind of what’s taking over his mind.
But more than the lyrics in this song is the music. You can kind of see this song being turned up and sung along to in the cars this coming summer. I think it’s a good time for this song to be coming on the radio and I think it’s a hit.
What are your thoughts on the song? I would love to hear what you think.
