On a 27-degree Saturday morning (Dec. 10), Dan + Shay decided to heat up Columbus, Ohio, by serving their fans hot chocolate as they waited in line for the duo’s concert later that night. The “19 You and Me” singers got the idea for the good deed as their bus pulled into town and they saw the freezing fans waiting in line at 8 a.m. for their show.
“What’s up y’all, we’re here in Columbus, Ohio, sold-out show at the Newport Music Hall,” Dan reports in the video. “It is absolutely freezing and we are bundled up like snowmen right now. But we have had fans waiting in line since the bus got here this morning at like 8 a.m., so we are going to do a little something for them.”
“That’s right,” adds Shay. “And that’s so early, first of all. I wasn’t even awake at 8 a.m. That’s insane and it’s so cold, so as a thank you we are going to run into Starbucks and we’re going to grab some hot chocolate to give to our wonderful fans that are out there waiting. Let’s do this.”
The duo delivered hot chocolate, chatted with fans and posed for photos with those brazen enough to wait in the cold. They even posted the video on their Facebook page, saying, “Woke up at 8 a.m. to fans waiting in line in Columbus. The least we could do say thanks is deliver hot chocolate!”
2016 has been a busy year for the duo as their single, “From the Ground Up,” reached the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Shay Mooney became engaged to his girlfriend, Hannah Billingsley, while also announcing that they are expecting their first child. Dan Smyers proposed to his girlfriend, Abby Law, in November. Can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for Dan + Shay.
