This past Sunday, my friend and I went to see Dan + Shay and Canaan Smith here in Charlotte. For the full experience, check out the video blog below. For a venue that doesn’t usually book country music artists, they definitely pulled in some good energy on a Sunday night. Canaan Smith opened the show debuting many of the songs that will be on his upcoming EP. My personal favorite was a slow love song called “Mad Love.” Canaan’s style is reminiscent of a mix between Luke Bryan and Eric Church. Alternating between ballads and high energy performances he showcased his vocal, guitar and even dance talents. The best part of his show for me was when he covered Nick Jonas’s “Jealous.” He saved the highly anticipated “Love You Like That” for last and came out after he was done performing to meet fans and take pictures.
Dan + Shay came out and ended with a bang playing every song off of their current album. They through a few others in there as well along the likes of Brooks and Dunn, Def Leppard and Diamond Rio. Their cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” was absolutely phenomenal. They slowed it down a bit with at the piano for their song “Fade Away,” and ended the show with vocals from the crowd on their hit single “19 You and Me.”
If the Where it All Began tour comes to a city near you, I highly recommend you make an appearance. You will not be disappointed. Hit the play button the video below and give a listen.
