Dan & Shay Lose To Cole

When Dan & Shay co-hosted Country Countdown USA this weekend, they had an interesting story for us when we got to Cole Swindell’s current hit “Break Up In The End.”  The duo’s Dan Smyers explained to Lon Helton:

“This song ‘Break Up In The End’ is one of our favorite songs we’ve ever heard. The demo was sent to us by a buddy at our record label, he was like ‘Check this song out and tell me what you think.’ We were about to go in the studio, they had this acoustic guitar & vocal demo.  I played it for Shay, and he said, ‘We need that song.’  So I hit our friend back, and we tried to put it on hold, and sure enough he got back to me, and said, ‘You guys have the third hold on it.’  So in the ten minutes between him sending it, and me hitting him back, Cole Swindell put it on hold, as well as Dierks Bentley, and then we had the third hold.  Cole did it big time justice, he cut the heck out of it, just a smash, just an incredible song. We still listen to it, we still listen to the demo, and it breaks our heart every time we listen to it, that’s country music, just a powerful lyric.”
