Chris Young was surprised earlier this week by members of his touring, management, business management and label teams with the news that he’s earned more than 3.5 billion career streams. Young accumulated some serious heavy metal from the RIAA just in the last month with eight certifications signifying over seven million consumption units over several projects. The new certifications include:

Single: “Tomorrow” – 2x Platinum
Album: I’m Comin’ Over – Platinum
Single: “Lonely Eyes” – Platinum
Single: “Voices” – Platinum
Single: “Drowning” – Gold
Single: “Raised On Country” – Gold
Single: “Hangin’ On” – Gold
Single: “I Can Take It From There” – Gold

Young has earned 21 RIAA Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum certifications to date.

“Today was absolutely a surprise with all of the plaques,” Young said. “Recording stuff for charity, celebrating the past, and talking about the future… I couldn’t ask for a better day.”
