Coming off the dust trails of their fifth consecutive and eighth No.1 country single, ‘I Should Probably Go To Bed,’ Dan + Shay have released a single that comes with a very important message of hope and gratitude to their fans.
‘Glad You Exist’ is a story of friendship, caring, and love told through poetic lyrics, intoxicating harmonies, and hypnotic, acoustic instrumentals. It pretty much speaks for itself when you listen to it, and we are almost speechless, but we WANT to talk about it! It’s such an important, powerful song, especially for the times we’re living in nowadays. We’re isolated, and everyone is having a hard time mentally, but we can spread love and encouragement to those in our lives that mean the most to us, even from a distance. They need to hear it just as much as you do, and this song is the perfect way for you to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Dan + Shay spoke about the song, saying:
To us, ‘Glad You Exist’ is more than just a song. It’s a message of gratitude and hope. A message to everyone in our lives: our fans, our friends, our families, to remind them all how grateful we are to be on the planet at the same time. It’s truly remarkable when you think about it. We’ve spent the majority of the past year, like many others, searching for answers and a sense of normalcy, but finding comfort in memories of better days (that we all know will return soon). Concerts, bonfires, road trips with friends, even the simple things like date night at a restaurant, or beers at a bar during a football game. This song has taken on a new meaning not being able to see our loved ones in person, but throughout history, music has always had a special way of bringing people together, even when we are furthest apart. These words hold a special place in our hearts, and hopefully they will in yours too. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again (and again). We’re just so glad you exist. Every. Single. One of you
