The award-winning country duo Dan + Shay — featuring hometown guy Dan Smyers — will perform on April 15 at Stage AE on Pittsburgh's North Side.

Dan + Shay – with Shay Mooney and Smyers, a McCandless native who went to North Allegheny High School — put out their sophomore album, “Obsessed,” in June of 2016. This came after their 2014 debut album, “Where It All Began,” which included the breakout hit “19 You + Me.” Other hits include “From the Ground Up” and “Nothin' Like You.” Mooney and Smyers met in Nashville in 2012 and immediately started writing songs and performing together. They were nominated for two awards — New Vocal Duo of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year — at the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month.

Smyers graduated in 2010 from Carnegie Mellon University with a business degree. In an interview last year, he told the Trib that Pittsburgh's cultural values – hard work and family – make it a good breeding ground for country music.

The show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25. Details: 800-745-3000 or

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
