Shay Mooney says he inherited his parents’ frugality

ABC/Larry McCormack

Dan + Shay may be superstars, but the duo’s Shay Mooney isn’t a spendthrift. Rather, his life is marked by thriftiness and a drive to scrim and save whenever possible.

“My parents were very frugal. They definitely passed that along to me,” says Shay. “Any chance I can get to save money or like save a dollar I will [do it].”

“I will drive miles out of my way to go find cheaper gas. Even though I spend more money driving to the gas station that’s farther away,” adds the father of three.

Coming up, Dan + Shay will kick off their The Heartbreak On The Map Tour February 29 in Greenville, South Carolina. For tickets and a full list of dates, head to Dan + Shay’s website.

Dan + Shay recently celebrated their 10th #1 hit with “Save Me the Trouble.” You can find the song and its follow-up single, the title track, on Bigger Houses, out now.
