Austin, Texas (CNN)CNN caught up with The Chainsmokers at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, where the dance pop duo got candid about the issues they care about, including public education and veteran’s affairs — areas that rely heavily on federal funding.

“It’s really sad to see first-hand the kids that are left behind and have to grow up without some the resources that you expect most kids to have available to them in America,” Drew Taggart told CNN.
Taggart and Alex Pall, who won a 2017 Grammy for Best Dance Recording, debuted their “Paris VR” video at Sony’s Lost in Music showcase in Austin and won the “Woodie of the Year” award at the MTV Woodies awards.
