Dan + Shay Serve Acoustic Version of 'Tequila' at 2019 Grammys

Dan + Shay played their country smash "Tequila" at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday (Feb. 10), in a striking, stripped-down performance. 

The duo performed the song along with just their own guitar and piano playing for accopaniment -- at least until a string section showed up near the performance's end for a little extra support. As the song ended, Shay Mooney stepped out from behind his piano to belt out the song's final power notes, bringing the crowd to their feet in applause. 

In addition to being a chart-topper on Billboard's Country Songs listing, "Tequila" was a Grammy winner for best country duo/group performance. The song was also nominated for best country song, but lost to Kacey Musgraves' "Space Cowboy." 

Watch the performance above.
