Parker McCollum has earned Double Platinum And Gold RIAA certifications for two of his chart-topping hits.
The Americana and country singer-songwriter was surprised with two RIAA plaques Saturday night ahead of his sold-out show at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville.
The plaques were presented to him by RIAA’s Jackie Jones, his label team at UMG Nashville, and Red Light Management.
The two plaques celebrate McCollum’s No.1 hits “Pretty Heart,” which has been certified 2x multi-Platinum, and “To Be Loved By You,” which has been certified Gold.
These songs are from his new album Gold Chain Cowboy, which was released last summer.
“What can I even say? I have a double Platinum hit and a Gold hit to start my career at the best record label in music,” said McCollum. “Universal Music Group Nashville/ MCA Nashville has been incredibly patient with me and allowed me to craft these songs the same way I always have. I am forever grateful for this opportunity to swing it in the big leagues of country music. We are just getting started.”
McCollum is set to make his debut at the CMA Fest in Nashville on June 12. He will also make his first appearance on the iconic music-television series “ACL Live” on July 26.
