Abby Smyers (married to Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay) might be one of the most caring people that has been on Country Wives so far. Not only is she passionate about her and Dan's rescue dogs but she also helped create an app called GVEBACK, where you can easily donate to a cause you are passionate about.
Abby met Dan when she was working as a label rep for Warner Bros. Records and had no clue he was interested in her when they first met:
"Before I met Dan I went through a terrible breakup with my college boyfriend and when I met him I was still not remotely ready to date anyone on the planet let alone who I would figure out would come to be my [husband], but I had no eyes open to anyone, I was so focused on my career.... it was so funny because my boss at the time came into my office and was like 'So Dan asked me if he could ask you out on a date...' and I was so confused by it"
She also talks about taking a self defense class with other wives of country artists after the tragedy at Route 91 in Vegas happened last year and how that experience taught her a little more about being cautious on social media.

This morning I drove to Manchester, TN to pick up this sweet little girl, Lucy. Her owners, though well intended, had not properly cared for her and she had gotten to this state (swipe for a close up of her but know that it’s sad ☹️). Thankfully, they did the right thing and surrendered her to @proverbs1210animalrescue. I was able to pick her up this morning and, with the help of another volunteer, get her to the vet where she will be fixed up. Once she is well, she will be available for adoption. I will keep everyone updated with her recovery process! PSA: if you have a pet, please provide them with flea, tick and heart worm preventative and have them spayed or neutered. Please 🙏. #adoptdontshop #rescuedog
