Dan + Shay Talk Grammy Win, Being Fans of Charlie Puth & Potential Post Malone Collab: Watch

Dan + Shay caught up with Billboard’s Keith Caulfield on the red carpet at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 10), chatting about their Grammy win, their love for Charlie Puth, and whether or not they might collaborate with Post Malone.

The duo, who took home the hardware for best country duo/group performance for their Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs-topping hit “Tequila,” express their excitement over the win to Billboard, with Shay Mooney noting that he was “on cloud nine” over winning their first Grammy.

“It feels crazy to hear people say ‘Grammy award winning,’” adds Dan Smyers. “That’s a surreal thing, and we’re thankful for a lot of people working hard to get us here, believing in us, and we’re gonna celebrate tonight. We have to perform on the show, so we’re trying to compose ourselves to get it together.”

Asked who they are most excited to see that evening, Smyers spots Charlie Puth on the red carpet and reveals that they are huge Puthers. “I want to get his autograph,” he jokes. “He’s one of the most genius musicians out there right now.”

On the subject of being at an awards show that features such a wide range of musicians, Mooney points out that while he and Smyers have been to plenty of country music award shows, being at the Grammys is really cool because they get to meet an entirely new group of artists they are fans of.

Finally, Dan + Shay are asked if there is any chance for a collaboration between them and Post Malone, and Mooney has no problem putting that out into the world. “Us, and him, and Travis Scott, we’re gonna come together and do a track together,” he says with a laugh. “We’re big fans of Posty,” adds Smyers.
