Dan + Shay‘s new album Good Things has become the first country album in the streaming era to achieve RIAA Gold certification at release. The news comes in right as the duo’s current single “Glad You Exist” claims the top spot on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts, marking their sixth consecutive and ninth career No.1. Dan + Shay will look to continue their string of chart toppers as their brand new single “Steal My Love” impacts radio today.
“Three years ago, Dan + Shay made history with ‘Tequila’ – and have continued on a meteoric rise ever since,” said Warner Music Nashville Chairman & CEO, John Esposito. “This extraordinary accomplishment is yet another testament to their unparalleled talent and work ethic. The first and only country album in the streaming era to be certified Gold upon release, are you kidding? That’s freaking insane! I couldn’t be one iota prouder that Dan + Shay are part of the Warner Music Nashville family. They are artists of a generation.”
“Congratulations to Dan + Shay on ‘Good Things’ becoming the first country album in the streaming era to be RIAA certified Gold at release!” said Mitch Glazier, Chairman & CEO, RIAA. “Dan + Shay are no stranger to high-ranking Gold & Platinum achievements. Every Dan + Shay album released has been certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA. An album only goes Gold on release when an artist has forged the most enduring and energized connection with their fans. Congrats to Dan + Shay and their team at Warner Music Nashville on this awesome milestone, which reflects years of incredible music and hard work.”
