Dustin Lynch Surprised With Platinum Plaque

Broken Bow’s Dustin Lynch was surprised by the RIAA on Friday afternoon (June 26) with a Platinum plaque for his multi-week No. 1 single “Where It’s At.”

Lynch served as a special guest panelist alongside RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman and Broken Bow VP of Promotion Lee Adams for the first “RIAA Live” event of summer 2015 at its D.C. headquarters. The audience of music industry and political tastemakers was also treated to an acoustic performance.

“What a dream come true!” shared Lynch. “I have an incredible team of people that believe in me and my music and work so hard and spend time away from their families…this is theirs as much as mine. Big thanks to everyone at country radio that believed in this song and chapter 2 of my music!”
