Dan + Shay "Save Me The Trouble" Song Review

The dynamic duo known as Dan + Shay is ready to release some new music. While their current single "You" is a radio favorite, they have been relatively quiet as they gear up to become coaches on The Voice. After laying low for some time, they are ready to show their fans what they have in store. Their new album, Bigger Houses, is slated to be released on September 15th.

Comprised of Shay Mooney and Dan Smyers, this duo has become a true force out of Nashville. They have plenty of hit songs to their credit such as "From the Ground Up," "Tequila," and "Speechless." Their style of pop melodies with heartfelt lyrics has made them a cross-genre favorite. In a recent video posted to social media, the pair got candid about the ups and downs they've experienced with fame. They even admitted they thought about walking away from working with each other; however, they have since been working on new material.


"Save Me The Trouble" showcases the new chapter for Mooney and Smyers. Their critics often doubt their true "country" sound, but this new release is a heartbreaking ballad from this genre. These two are ambassadors of contemporary country music, and perhaps we're all better for what they bring to the table.


This song is about wanting to keep as far away from someone as possible. In reality, the lyrics are born out of the fear of getting hurt. "Keep those pretty blue eyes to yourself / Why don't you save me the trouble / Give that heartache to somebody else." The emotive lyrics paint a picture of why many have probably felt. Mooney and Smyers offer a more stripped-down style, but that isn't so unusual for them. Their music is about wearing one's heart on their sleeve, which is why they have built a successful career.
