Dan + Shay Announce New Single “How Not To”


Hot off their latest No. 1 smash, triple-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year nominees Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) reveal their newest single “How Not To” from their second album, Obsessed.

The song, which was most added this week at country radio, laments a hard-to-forget relationship and was written by Adam Hambrick, Paul DiGiovanni and Kevin Bard.
