Dan + Shay Bring the Tears with New Video

Get your box of tissues ready! Dan + Shay have released a powerful music video for their single “How Not To” --  and it is a tear-jerker.

The short film opens at an alcoholics anonymous meeting where a young woman, Sophie, shares that she’s been sober for a day and jokingly adds, “But it’s only 7:00, so I still have, like, five hours. We’ll see what happens.” From across the circle a young man laughs, and the two share a smile. Thus begins the emotional journey of the two characters as they struggle to overcome their addictions.

The video is a raw look at the challenges that accompany addictions and a tribute to the incredible triumphs of individuals who overcome them. We won’t spoil the ending, but trusts us—you’ll want to watch all the way through.

“How Not To” is the second single from Dan + Shay’s sophomore album Obsessed. This follows the duo’s hit “From the Ground Up,” which topped the country charts last summer.

The Obsessed Tour kicks off February 9 in Rosemont, Ill., and runs through the end of July. Click here to check out the full list of tour dates and locations.
