DAN SMYERS, the taller one in DAN + SHAY, was involved in a car accident on Tuesday. It wasn't serious, but he did break his wrist and ended up spending the day in the emergency room.
He Tweeted a pic of his left hand in a cast and wrote, "Can't thank you all enough for the texts + tweets about my accident. Broken wrist or not, the show must go on."
Yup, Dan + Shay put the + sign on everything. Please make them stop.
He wasn't joking about the show going on. They're on the road opening for HUNTER HAYES . . . and they're not planning to cancel any performances.
They're also breaking records. Their album "Where It All Began", which came out last week, debuted at Number One on the Top Country Albums chart. They're now the FIRST country duo to hit #1 with a debut album. (Billboard)
For comparison's sake: It took 16 weeks for BIG & RICH'S first album "Horse of a Different Color" to reach the top . . . and 28 weeks for FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE'S "Here's to the Good Times" to make it to Number One.
