Dan + Shay’s ‘Speechless’ Wins 2019 AMAs Prize for Favorite Song Country
Dan + Shay's song "Speechless" won the Favorite Song — Country award at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 24), but the duo were not out of words.
Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney recognized time was short, but managed to thank everyone they had to toward the end of a three-hour ABC broadcast. The singers were seen on television throughout the night rocking to the rock and pop artists performing, but they made it clear their heart is in Nashville.
"We're so proud to be part of the country music community," Smyers said before thanking fans and, "Our wives are watching back home in Nashville ... we love you so much."
Mooney gave a quick shoutout to his Dan + Shay partner, the fans and his little boy, Asher, back home in Music City. The duo's win for Favorite Song — Country marks their first AMA after two nominations in 2018. Luke Combs' "Beautiful Crazy" and Blake Shelton's "God's Country" were the other nominees in the category.
