You wouldn't know it from their already impressive catalog, though: the prolific pair has written more than 90 songs, and one, "19 You + Me," is already a bonafide hit single. Meanwhile, Dan + Shay's debut album, Where It All Began, hit stores this week, and the pair might just take home the ACM award for vocal duo of the year this Sunday. Whew!
