Dan+Shay's "Glad You Exist" is a sweet dedication to all types of love

American pop Country Duo Dan and Shay released their hit single, "Glad You Exist," on February 5, 2021. A perfect love song to bring warmth and hope in these current times. The superstar duos shared their songwriting process by collaborating with Tayla Parx, Jordan Reynolds, and Ryan Lewis.

Grammy Country singers triumphed to write a gentle-hearted soundtrack with an upbeat pop-acoustic to a purely intimate song. Three simple words, "Glad You Exist," expressing jubilation to finding true love.  

A gracious chorus,  Dan and Shay sweetly harmonize together, "There's a couple of billion people in the world (Yeah-yeah-yeah)And a million other places we could be, but you're here with me (Yeah-yeah-yeah)." Brian Sutton's acoustic guitar delivers a foot-tapping country sound,  which brightens the song's mood—followed by a sweet-sounding piano and a melodious voice from backup singer Abby Smyers, Dan's wife, who became his muse and inspiration.

Compared to their last single, "I Should Probably Go To Bed," released July 31, 2020, a heartbreaking story of getting over a past love.  This song solutes all types of love, especially relationships that are going through ups and downs.  The second verse, "All the right words at the right time, and you know 'em 'cause you know me better than anyone else; we don't need anyone else." Portrays an 'us against the world' feeling: a warm melody, sweet rendition of everlasting gratitude to a partner, friend, or relative.

Overall it is a catchy love song filled with optimism, but most importantly, it is a message for everyone. Whether you're apart or together from a loved one, always a good reminder to let them know you care. In addition to their single release this year, the musical duos are set to appear on The Voice Season 20 as battle advisors on March 1, 2021, on NBC.
