Chris Young Celebrates Three Consecutive Gold Singles And Gold Album

After celebrating his 30th birthday Friday (June 12), Chris Young spent Saturday as the CMA Artist of the Day on the Close Up stage. RCA Records Nashville surprised him with plaques commemorating milestone sales for three consecutive Gold singles: “Aw Naw,” “Who I Am With You,” and “Lonely Eyes,” and a Gold album certification for Neon.

Randy Houser Receives Standing Ovation With “Like A Cowboy”

Without so much as a soundcheck going into his set that night, Houser and his band also powered through the chart-topping “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and Houser’s rollicking new single, “We Went.”
