Dan + Shay nabbed the Duo Video of the Year trophy at the 2020 CMT Music Awards for their “I Should Probably Go To Bed” music video.
“Thank you CMT, thank you so much for being in our corners since day one,” Dan Smyers exclaimed.
He went on to thank their fans, saying, “You guys change our lives every single day.”
Shay Mooney admitted he was “nervous” when accepting the award thanked their families and called out his son, Asher, at home, telling him it was time to go to bed.
“We would not be where we are without you guys,” Mooney gushed.
