Kenny Chesney‘s duet with Grace Potter “You and Tequila,” has been certified platinum. This achievement marks the second single from his platinum-selling Hemingway’s Whiskey album to reach this status; “Somewhere With You” was awarded the same honor last year.

“It’s thrilling to know that Deana Carter and Matraca Berg‘s beautiful song has reached so many people,” Chesney said.

He will hit the road with Tim McGraw for a stadium tour opening June 2 in Tampa, FL. The outing has already sold more than 500,000 tickets.

Chesney is up for two Grammys at this year’s awards, and an impressive nine ACM awards, the most of any artist nominated this year.
