Heroes of the Week: Dan + Shay


Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.


This week, we’d like to pay tribute to a country duo that went above and beyond to help others during such a troubled year.

Dan + Shay recently teamed up with Safe Haven Family Shelter in Middle Tennessee.  The guys were able to be a part of the experience of providing homeless families with a place of their own. In fact, they presented three families with their own homes.

Safe Haven Family Shelter focuses on folks who have fallen on tough times and offers them shelter, food, and many other things that we all take for granted. Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney were so moved by their experience that they shared the story hoping to remind us of how lucky so many are and maybe get more people involved in helping those less fortunate.

Kix’s Response:

Great work, guys! What a way to step up to help some folks who need it most.

And, to all of you who have written in to share your stories throughout this past year, we thank you. Keep them coming for the new year! Its great inspiration to us and a lot of our listeners out there.
