Hunter Hayes, the Eli Young Band and Florida
Georgia Line are among the country artists receiving new certifications from the RIAA. Hayes’ “Wanted”
has been certified triple platinum, while the Eli Young Band’s “Crazy
Girl” has reached double platinum. Earlier this year, the RIAA updated its platinum certification to reflect a combination
of sales and streaming to equal 1 million units.
Meanwhile, platinum singles went to Florida Georgia Line (“Get
Your Shine On”), Gloriana (“(Kissed
You) Good Night”) and Rascal Flatts and Natasha Bedingfield (“Easy”).
In addition, gold certifications were received by Kenny Chesney (“Pirate
Flag”) and Justin Moore (“Til
My Last Day”) to reflect 500,000 combined units of sales and streaming.
