– Dan + Shay's "Good Things," released on Friday," became 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 number one.
Dan + Shay will look have a new single "Steal My Love" going for adds at country 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."
Mitch Glazier, Chairman & CEO, RIAA, said, "Dan + Shay are no stranger to high-ranking Gold and 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."
Last Friday, Dan + Shay celebrated the new LP with the Good Things Album Release Concert at The Great Lawn in Centennial Park, marking the first time Nashville's park has ever hosted a major concert. Label mates Ingrid Andress and Morgan Evans opened the show before the duo came out to a capacity crowd of 10,000 people.
Following the performance, Dan + Shay were surprised with several plaques, including Gold certification for "Good Things," 4x Platinum certification for "10,000 Hours," Platinum certification for "I Should Probably Go To Bed" and Gold certification for "Glad You Exist."
