“Another Gold record – what an awesome thing to be able to say,” shares McCollum. “I can’t thank the fans enough for always showing up. Y’all keep this whole thing going and I couldn’t do it without you.”
“Parker McCollum is a redefining, culture shaping artist,” shares Mabe. “At a time when star power is being undervalued and streaming metrics are crowned king, Parker proves that you can have, and be, both. Parker is a very important artist for the future of country music and we are beyond blessed that he is helping define our next era of country music at Universal Music Group Nashville.”
“The RIAA is excited to share in this incredible accomplishment with Parker, his team and everyone at UMG Nashville,” shares Jones. “RIAA certifications are earned solely based on what the fans are choosing to listen to. Seeing this song get certified so quickly is a true testament to the impact Parker has on his fans.”
Tune-in this Thursday, March 30th to NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” as McCollum makes his debut on the show, performing “Handle On You.” The track is the lead single from his forthcoming album, Never Enough, out May 12 and available to pre-order here.
