Dan + Shay's Good Things (Warner Nashville) is the first country album of the streaming era to achieve RIAA gold certification upon release.

“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.”

Following a performance 8/13 at Nashville’s Centennial Park, Dan + Shay were presented with several plaques to add to their ever-growing collection: gold for Good Things, quadruple platinum for “10,000 Hours,” platinum for “I Should Probably Go to Bed” and gold for “Glad You Exist.”

“Glad You Exist,” Dan + Shay's current single, tops the Country Airplay chart. It's the duo's ninth #1. They just released “Steal My Love” to radio. Catch them Wednesday on CBSThe Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
