Listen, it is no small feat for an artist to earn a Recording Industry Association of America – Diamond Certification. In order to achieve this, an act must sell 10 million (or more) copies of an album or single. Well, Kane Brown is now officially a member of this exclusive club. Yep, Brown has gone from wearing diamonds to having his singe, Heaven, RIAA – Diamond Certified!

Just how exclusive is this club? Only eight country acts have a certified diamond single. They include Luke Combs – Beautiful Crazy, Florida Georgia Line – Cruise, Lady A – Need You Now, Darius Rucker – Wagon Wheel, Chris Stapleton – Tennessee Whiskey, Billy Ray Cyrus & Lil Nas X – Old Town Road and Sam Hunt – Body Like a Back Road.

While celebrating the tremendous news, Kane received congratulatory messages from friends, colleagues and a few of the aforementioned club members. Luke Combs said; “I just want to say welcome to the club, man. Keep killin’, man. You’ve always been awesome!”

Speaking of accolades, Lainey Wilson just keeps racking them up, too! According to an X post from U.S. Radio Updater, Miss Lainey, is the first female in history to earn four number ones on US country radio in a single year. Additionally, her music is trumping some of the most successful men in country music as well. Miss Lainey now has the most number one’s on US country radio – beating out Jelly Roll, Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen. Finally, her run of number one hits has cemented her as the most successful female artist of the decade.

All hail Miss Lainey Wilson, our new Queen of Country Music!
