Song becomes one of three country singles to earn feat in last five years
Brett Young has already topped the charts with seven consecutive No. 1 hits, but his latest milestone continues to raise the bar for this superstar. His smash single “In Case You Didn’t Know” has been certified 8x Platinum by the RIAA and becomes one of only three country songs since 2017 to achieve the honor. Young wrote the track, which has remained a fan favorite since its release, alongside Trent Tomlinson and Tyler Reeve.
“Eight times Platinum – that’s pretty wild,” Young shares. “I could never have imagined what this song would become when we first wrote it. It’s humbling to have created something that has resonated so strongly with so many people.”
“’In Case You Didn’t Know’ is one of only three country singles released in the past five years to achieve RIAA 8X multi-Platinum or higher! Just three,” adds Jackie Jones, VP of Artist and Industry Relations at RIAA. “Congratulations to Brett and his Big Machine team on this incredible achievement!”
BMLG Records President/CEO Jimmy Harnen and Otter Creek Entertainment’s Van Haze celebrated several impressive accolades with Young during a recent show at The Bluebird Café in Nashville.
Young’s heartbreak anthem “Mercy” also earned 4x RIAA Platinum certification and “Like I Loved You” went 2x Platinum. He is simultaneously climbing the charts with the reflective “You Didn’t” and the “Never Til Now” collaboration with Ashley Cooke. Young is currently on the road performing his streak of hits.
