Happy 10 years with Dan + Shay!

On Wednesday, the country music duo marked 10 years since they first met with a sweet post on Instagram, including several photos of them over the years.

“The one thing that has been constant throughout our decade-long journey is our friendship. More than anything else, we really are just two best friends who get to do what we love together and we wouldn’t trade it for the world. Currently working on our 5th album, our relationship is stronger than it’s ever been and our sense of gratitude is at an all-time high.”

We’re more focused than ever and know our best music is yet to come. From the ground up from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for continuing to believe in us. It means more than you’ll ever know.”

“It’s become more of a brother situation. We’re family at this point. We work so well together because we couldn’t be more opposite people in the best ways. I’m a pretty upbeat guy, but I’m all over it . Dan is a realist and he keeps me grounded. I make Dan have a little more fun than he normally would,” Mooney, 30, said at the time.

Smyers, 35, added: “I can’t even imagine doing this without Shay. It’s just this intangible thing. The sum is greater than the parts. It’s something I will never take for granted. The music industry is a huge emotional roller coaster, and it can take a toll on your mental health. There’s no one who can really relate to what you’re going through. But we have each other.”
