When You’re Hot, You’re Hot: Dan + Shay Score 3rd Consecutive No. 1 Single With “How Not To” & Announce New Single

On June 19, 1971, Jerry Reed topped the country chart with his single, “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot.”

46 years later, Dan + Shay are encompassing the sentiment of Jerry’s tune as their third consecutive single, “How Not To,” has topped both the Mediabase chart and Billboard Country Airplay chart. “How Not To,” which was penned by Adam Hambrick, Paul DiGiovanni and Kevin Bard, follows Dan + Shay’s previous No. 1 singles “Nothin’ Like You” and “From the Ground Up.”

“What’s going on everybody, we are so pumped,” said Dan Smyers in a video clip posted on Twitter. “‘How Not To’ is officially number one at country radio. Huge shout-out to our friends at country radio for playing the heck out of this song, for believing in us, for completely changing our lives. That is three number ones in a row, baby. It is so amazing. Thank you, guys.”

“This feels like a dream, man” added Shay Mooney. “Thank you country radio. Thank you to our fans. We love you guys so much from the bottom of our heart. Thank you for calling and requesting this song. And also to the songwriters of this song, ‘How Not To’—Paul, Adam, Kevin—thank you for making a beautiful song and letting us record it.”

Following a vote by their fans, Dan + Shay announced their new single will be “Road Trippin’.”

“Fans would always make posts saying, ‘Road tripping to the Dan + Shay show!’—and we thought that was fantastic,” says Shay. “We knew we had to make it into a song. We had a blast writing ‘Road Trippin’, and I think that comes across.”
