We now know what Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney sound like together, and the answer is GORGEOUS. The duo’s new collaboration, “Over Us,” with Underwood is out. The song, which was produced by Dan Smyers, is from the upcoming Dear Evan Hansen movie, starring Ben Platt and Kaitlyn Dever.
Dan + Shay boasted about the collaboration on social media, admitting they are big, big fans of the American Idol alum.
“We’re [Carrie Underwood] superfans and it’s always been a dream to collaborate with her. We’re also [Dear Evan Hansen] superfans and the fact that we got to record ‘Only Us’ for the … soundtrack is quite possibly the coolest thing that’s ever happened to us,”
