Lee Brice and Carly Pearce have scored a Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for their chart-topping hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”

They were surprised during Wednesday evening’s CMA Summer Stay-Cay presented by Budweiser Nitro Gold’s virtual celebration, as CMA CEO Sarah Trahern presented them with a plaque commemorating the sales milestone.

“I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which Pearce wrote alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton, and Randy Montana, has earned over 225 million global streams.

“I knew when I heard the song for the first time that this was something special and I’m honored that Carly asked me to be a part of it,” says Lee. “Thank you to all the fans for loving this song as much as Carly and I did recording it and making this a PLATINUM hit.”

“Having songs that meant something to people was always my dream,” expressed Carly. “To see these songs reach such big milestones and see that my music is making an impact on people’s lives is more than I could’ve ever hoped for. I will never take any of this for granted and am so thankful.”
