Dan + Shay are celebrating their tenth No.1 hit, with “Save Me The Trouble.” The song is the debut single from their Bigger Houses album, out in September. Both Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney expressed their gratitude for the milestone, in a heartfelt video shared on social media.
“We just wanted to hop on here real quick and say that ‘Save Me The Trouble’ is officially our tenth No. 1 song at country radio as of this week,” Smyers begins. “It’s surreal to even say that out loud, and what a dream come true. Thank you so much to all the country radio stations that played the heck out of this song. To our fans, for showing love and streaming this song, and spreading the word, our co-writers, everybody in the studio who helped us bring it to life. We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2024, or to kick off the Bigger Houses album cycle. We are truly so grateful.”
“I’m fired up,” adds Mooney. “I can’t wait to play this song on the Heartbreak On the Map Tour coming up at the end of February. We are so excited. Thank you guys. I know we’ve said that, but we’re going to say it a million times. We are so grateful to be coming into this year with our tenth No. 1. It’s absolutely crazy. After being in a band for ten years, this is absolutely wild. Thank you for everything. We love you. We’ll see you on the Heartbreak On the Map Tour.”
SAVE ME THE TROUBLE is officially our 10th #1 at country radio! We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2024 and the BIGGER HOUSES album cycle. Huge thank you to all the stations who played the song and our fans for continuing to believe in the music. In this season of immense gratitude, seeing our name at the top of the chart means more than ever. Can’t wait to celebrate with everyone on the road this year, and here’s to the next one! 🏠

“Save Me The Trouble” might have been their first single from Bigger Houses, but it was the final song they wrote for the project.
“‘Save Me The Trouble’ was the very last song that we wrote for this album,” Dan Smyers previously told Audacy. “That’s kind of how it always goes; you turn in the whole album, you think you’re done. All the pressure’s off and you get back in the writing room, when nobody’s looking over your shoulder, expecting anything, and this song poured out of us. The same thing happened with ‘Speechless,’ on our self-titled album.”
Bigger Houses is the first project Dan + Shay released after separating for four months, unsure if they would ever make music as a duo again.
“I headed over to his house and honestly at that point, I didn’t really know what the future of the band was going to be. And I got there, and it just was the most incredible night,” Mooney recalled to People. “That night kind of changed everything because we aired a lot of stuff out. I apologized for things in the past and he did the same. We had this come-to-Jesus moment.”
