Enjoy watching Country music duo Dan + Shay's music video for "Tequila" that became their most popular music video of their duo career. . .

The Dan and Shay Tequila song was released in 2018 as a track on their self titled album.  Country music duo Dan + Shay managed to write a song about tequila that did not involve a party. In fact, their song “Tequila” is quite the opposite of a party.

The music video became the most popular of Dan and Shay’s duo career with over 140 million views as of March of 2022.  Enjoy the unexpected “Tequila” music video and see the lyrics and song details below.

“At first, when you hear that title, you think like party song, uptempo, feel good, like, ‘Let’s drink tequila and get crazy,” Dan Smyers shared with Billboard Country Update. “But you know, typical Nashville songwriter, my brain goes off, and I’m like, ‘What if we make it a sad song?'”

However, it’s not all sad thoughts. Instead, the track is more about how certain things evoke emotional memories. “Senses are the ultimate nostalgia triggers. Whether it’s smell or taste, they take you right back. Like anytime I drink Coors Lite or smell Coors Lite, it feels like I’m at a baseball game with my dad when I’m a little kid,” he added.

Goodness. That ending. Loving the use of American Sign Language in this video and the fact that deaf model/actor Nyle DiMarco stars in the clip.

Dan and Shay Tequila Lyrics

I can still shut down a party
I can hang with anybody
I can drink whiskey and red wine
Champagne all night
Little Scotch on the rocks and I’m fine, I’m fine

But when I taste tequila, baby I still see ya
Cutting up the floor in a sorority t-shirt
The same one you wore when we were
Sky high in Colorado, your lips pressed against the bottle
Swearing on a Bible, baby, I’d never leave ya
I remember how bad I need ya, when I taste tequila
When I taste tequila

I can kiss somebody brand new and not even think about you
I can show up to the same bar
Hear the same songs in my car
Baby, your memory it only hits me this hard

When I taste tequila, baby I still see ya
Cutting up the floor in a sorority t-shirt
The same one you wore when we were
Sky high in Colorado, your lips pressed against the bottle
Swearing on a Bible, baby, I’d never leave ya
I remember how bad I need ya, when I taste tequila
When I taste tequila

I ain’t even drunk, I ain’t even drunk
And I’m thinking
How I need your love, how I need your love
Yeah, it sinks in

When I taste tequila, baby I still see ya
Sorority t-shirt, the same one you wore when we were
Sky high in Colorado, your lips pressed against the bottle
Swearing on a Bible, baby, I’d never leave ya
I remember how bad I need ya, when I taste tequila
When I taste tequila
When I taste tequila
When I taste tequila
