Dan + Shay Cover Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ [Watch]
Dan + Shay have been on the road for the majority of 2018, playing to country fans as part of Chris Young's Losing Sleep World Tour and Rascal Flatts' Back to Us Tour. Over the weekend they joined the latter tour, which kicked off in Hartford, Conn., and the country duo added a few new songs into their set.
Well known for their heartfelt ballads, Dan + Shay switched gears mid-set for a high-energy cover of Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling." The four-minute performance showcased Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney's spellbinding harmonies, while the crowd danced along.
Throughout their performance of Timberlake's hit, the duo took time to introduce their band to the crowd. By the song's end, Dan + Shay had the audience in the palms of their hands as they jumped around stage and urged fans to take part in a sing-along.
Dan + Shay recently received their first-ever award when they took home a coveted CMT Music Award; scoring the Duo Video of the Year for their song "Tequila" at this year's ceremonies.
The pair join Carly Pearce as openers throughout Rascal Flatts' tour this year. Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox raved about Dan + Shay upon announcing the trek:
“I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” LeVox said. “We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album. Coming back this year and with our friends Dan + Shay, who are some of the best guys around, as well as Carly who had an amazing year last year, makes it all the more exciting! It’s going to be an awesome time for us and the fans!”
