Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay released their first original holiday song, “Take Me Home for Christmas,” at midnight on Nov. 6. The new tune was penned by Dan, Andy Albert, Jordan Reynolds, Jordan Schmidt and Mitchell Tenpenny.
“This is our first original Christmas song, and we had a blast writing and recording it,” says Dan. “It was cool to get in the holiday spirit a little early this year, because I think we could all use some extra positivity and cheer. Our fans have asked for Christmas music every year, so I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.”
The festive new tune finds Shay crooning the Christmastime chorus: “Baby, won’t you take me home for Christmas / Show me around your town / Take me where you used to watch the snow come down / All of your traditions I wanna know them all / You’ll check every box off of my list If you take me home for Christmas.”
