Dan + Shay traveled to the mountains of Colorado for their new music video, “Tequila.” Dan Smyers collaborated on the idea with director Patrick Tracy. The clip was filmed in the mountains of Breckenridge, CO and explores a whirlwind romance between stars Nyle DiMarco and Mica Von Turkovich. Noted deaf activist and model DiMarco brought his own unique experience to the project, allowing for a visual exploration into the depths of communication within a relationship.
Dan said, “Working with Nyle was truly an honor. He was an absolute pro, on and off camera, and just a rad guy to hang out with. After the video wrapped, we got to hit the town of Breckenridge together along with his awesome co-star Mica. We are so inspired by Nyle’s advocacy to improve accommodations for the deaf community, and we hope that the ‘Tequila’ video will serve as another platform for him to do just that.”
Dan + Shay performed “Tequila” late last week, just hours after receiving their fifth consecutive nomination for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year. The 53rd annual ACM Awards will air live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15th on CBS.
