Walker Hayes Celebrates Four New RIAA Certifications As Country Stuff The Album Hits Major Milestone

Walker Hayes is celebrating four new certifications that he earned from The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)!

The viral hitmaker and Alabama native’s smash hit “Fancy Like” has been certified 4X Platinum, “AA” went Platinum and “U Gurl” has earned a Gold certification. Meanwhile, Country Stuff The Album, the project that all three songs are featured on, has reached Gold status.

As of July 2022, Country Stuff The Album is one of only three albums in any genre released in 2022 to have gained an RIAA certification, and the only country album to do so.

“To watch these songs grow and impact more and more people is everything you can ask for as an artist,” Hayes shared. “My fans are the most incredible fans out there, and this is all due to them.”

To celebrate the exciting news, Robert Carlton, Senior Vice President, Development at SMACKSongs and Katie McCartney, GM of Monument Records, surprised Hayes with a new plaque.

Walker Hayes is currently gearing up to hit the road on his first-ever headlining arena tour, dubbed the Glad You’re Here Tour.

“GLAD YOU’RE HERE ARENA TOUR… can’t frickin believe it,” Hayes wrote on Twitter. “It’s mind-blowing how our team is growing, how the crowds are growing and how the music continues to connect with my audience. I’m just so grateful.”

The 18-city trek, which features support from Parmalee, will kick off in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on September 29 and continue through November 12, where the tour will wrap up in Everett, Washington at Angel Of the Winds Arena.

Additionally, Hayes recently released his new single “Y’all Life,” which was most-added at Country radio upon release, and is preparing for new music in the near future.
