Walker Hayes celebrates more milestones as smash hit “Fancy Like” goes RIAA xX Platinum, “AA” becomes certified Platinum, and his album Country Stuff The Album reaches Gold. Hayes’ music is moving so fast, that as he was taking this photo, his single “U Gurl” also became RIAA certified Gold.
As of July, Country Stuff The Album is one of only three albums in any genre released in 2022 to have gained an RIAA certification, and the only country album to do so.
“To watch these songs grow and impact more and more people is everything you can ask for as an artist,” says Hayes. “My fans are the most incredible fans out there, and this is all due to them.”
Robert Carlton, Senior Vice President, Development at SMACKSongs and Katie McCartney, GM of Monument Records, surprised Hayes with a new plaque at his sold-out show in Long Island, N.Y. this weekend, ahead of his playing the Citi Summer Concert Series on the TODAY Show the following day.
Hayes is preparing for his headlining arena Glad You’re Here tour, kicking off this fall, while riding the high of current single “Y’all Life,” and preparing for new music.

ABOUT WALKER HAYES:
Monument Records recording artist Walker Hayes is a singer/songwriter originally from Mobile, Alabama. Last year, his smash hit “Fancy Like” topped every country music sales and streaming chart, spent more than six months at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, hit the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs, hit No. 1 at country radio, and gave Hayes his first GRAMMY Award nomination as an artist for Best Country Song. The song was also featured in a nationwide Applebee’s commercial. That track, as well as follow up single “AA,” and new song “Y’all Life,” have made Hayes one of the top selling and streamed artists in country music.
Hayes has performed his music, including the Double-Platinum RIAA certified hit “You Broke Up With Me,” to national audiences on Good Morning America, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and TODAY, and he was profiled for CBS Sunday Morning. This fall, he sets out on his headlining arena tour, the Glad You’re Here tour, which is the same title as the book he released with his best friend, Craig Allen Cooper, detailing his journey to finding Christ.https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/08/walker-hayes-hits-riaa-milestones/NewsPress ReleaseTours"U Gurl" Country Stuff The Album,Glad You're Here Tour,Monument Records,RIAA xX Platinum,Walker Hayes
