The breakout act is the only duo in SoundScan reported history to debut at No. 1 with their first album on the Country Albums Chart and is the highest Billboard charting debut artists of 2014. Already selling almost 650,000 total tracks including over 550,000 of their hit single, Dan + Shay showcased "19 You + Me" on Good Morning America and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," with both shows naming them "one of the hottest new acts in country music." The single was spotlighted as a "Hot Music Download" by People Country and exclaimed to "equal success" in USA Today. People Magazine noted "[Dan + Shay] make a pretty sweet soundtrack for your spring," while USA Today called them "storytellers at heart," with "sun kissed harmonizing and carefree delivery."
