Dan + Shay was new to me although the rest of the world is already in deep with them and for good reason. We had super fans lining up outside the venue at 7 am and others hiding on the other side of the fence at various times of the day. I spent a bit of time with Shay and Justin (lead guitar and fashion designer extraordinar) at a local eyewear shop PROOF (shenanigans ensue) and by the time we left I was internally horrified and honored at the same time that they were calling me “Mom”. After several threats of me grounding them and sending them to the corner if we didn’t head back to the venue soon they insisted I try on some glasses. I did as I was told and before we left they told me I looked “rad” and that I had to accept the glasses as a gift or it would insult them. I graciously accepted and have to admit I’m a better driver because of them.
This is a group I hope to work for again because I couldn’t get enough of their kindness and down to earth nature. They have dedicated fans around the globe and one new “mom” the next time they visit Boise.
