Why Dan + Shay Use A + Sign In Their Name

We finally know why Dan + Shay has a “plus sign” between their names, instead of an ampersand (&) or the word “and.”

Dan Smyers explained in a recent post on Instagram.

The vision from day one was that if we ever got to headline arenas, we’d have a “plus” stage in the middle of the floor and make it do all kinds of crazy stuff. This also kept us from using an [Ampersand] because that would surely be a pain in the ass to build.  At the time, it was such a long shot, but y’all have stuck by our sides through every bit of this journey, and here we are.”

Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood called it a “privilege and honour” to join Dan + Shay on the song “Only Us” from the “Dear Evan Hansen” soundtrack.
