Country duo Dan + Shay just dropped a brand new song titled “From The Ground Up.” The track is the debut single from the pair’s forthcoming album.
Along with releasing the new song today, Dan + Shay also treated fans to the single’s accompanying music video.
“For this video we wanted to do something that we hadn’t done before. Make an epic video that kind of matched the cinema of the song. And it was really fun to put this together, because we were kind of involved in the making of the story line, and how we wanted this portrayed,” the pair told The Bobby Bones Show. “We got to be creatively involved in that and have a blast making it.”
The duo also called this track “probably the most special song we’ve ever written,” as it was inspired by their own grandparents.
“‘From The Ground Up’ is a song that we wrote when we were actually going to record vocals for another song. And we got to talking, and my grandfather had just passed away, and Shay’s grandfather was in the hospital, and we were getting all emotional, and we had an acoustic guitar,” they said. “So we just started rattling off lines, and we wrote the line, ‘We’ll build this love from the ground up,’ which is symbolic of the love that our grandparents shared, and they were together for 65 years.”
