Paul DiGiovanni, a rising star in the country music world, recently had a life-changing experience he describes as “surreal.” Between the time he walked into the Music Row offices of Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) Nashville to write a song and the time he walked back out a couple of hours later, the celebratory banner outside the building had been changed, with the new one lauding his first No. 1 as a writer, Dan + Shay‘s “How Not To.”

“I’m still really digesting it,” the songwriter-producer says of having a chart-topping song (written with Kevin Bard and Adam Hambrick). “It’s the biggest dream of mine coming true, and I’m just waiting for it to all to sink in.”
