In an already award filled year for Dan + Shay, the hottest duo in country music has another opportunity to walk home with 3 more trophies this weekend at the American Music Awards. Their nominations include Favorite Duo or Group of the Year, and Favorite Song for “10,000 Hours”, both in the country categories.
Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours” also has a nomination, along with Justin Bieber, in the all-genre Collaboration of the Year…which Shay says is not only important for him and Dan, but also country music in general “Being in that all-genre category just…I think it’s great for not only for our career, but just the country music format. You know, any time we can…We love country music and we’re so proud of the people who are in our format, and any time bring over some fans from somewhere else and get them to kind of check out some other country artists because they heard us on the pop station or watched us on an award show, we’re very thankful for that. And I think that’s good for everybody. So, we’re very appreciative to be in that all-genre category kind of waving that country music banner.”
The 2020 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on ABC on November 22 at 8 PM ET/ 7C.
