Dan + Shay Win 2019 ACM Awards Duo of the Year
Dan + Shay continued their triumphant 2019 ACM Awards by winning the Duo of the Year award in a stacked category. The pair beat out Brothers Osborne, Florida Georgia Line, LoCash and Maddie & Tae in taking home the hardware.
It was their third win of the evening after also nabbing both Song of the Year and Single of the Year for their mega smash hit "Tequila." Dan + Shay previously earned three nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year at the ACM Awards, losing the category in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
The duo had barely just finished their performance of "Keeping Score" with Kelly Clarkson when the award was announced.

Newly engaged couple Michael Ray and Carly Pearce presented the award, joking how two people can make beautiful music, "And in some cases, maybe even get engaged," Ray quipped before doing a little dance.
Dan + Shay shared an enthusiastic backstage embrace when Pearce and Ray announced their win. Dan Smyers took the mic first, talking a mile a minute and seemingly thanking everybody in Nashville for the win.
Dan + Shay came into the evening with six ACM nominations, among the most of any artist.
