Walker Hayes’ single “You Broke Up With Me” has reached double platinum status. The achievement makes Hayes’ hit one of only 25 double platinum country songs and one of only five debut singles to reach that status in the past three years.
The RIAA’s Jackie Jones was on hand to tell Hayes about his achievement, as well as Bobby Bones, who was originally set to surprise Hayes on his “Bobby Bones Super Easy Trivia Show,” but Hayes was eliminated during an early trivia round, so Bones didn’t have a chance to surprise Hayes on the show. Ultimately, Bones had Hayes on The Bobby Bones Show today (April 29) to present him with the plaque.
“It seriously feels like a miracle,” said Hayes. “I’ve been on quite a long journey, and getting this affirmation is huge. Excited doesn’t even begin to cover how I felt when I first found out, and truthfully how I still feel thinking about It. I used to intro ‘You Broke Up With Me’ at shows by saying ‘This went platinum’ and now I can be like ‘This is a multi-platinum record.’ Grateful for this song’s success and now I am ready to do it all over again with my new one ‘Trash My Heart.’”
