Congrats, Granger Smith! “Backroad Song” Is Now RIAA Gold

Congrats are in order for Granger Smith!

The country singer accepted the RIAA GOLD certified plaque for his No. 1 hit “Backroad Song” during the 2017 CMA Music Festival on Friday (June 9) in Nashville, TN.

Alongside reps from BBR Music Group and BMG, his band, crew and support team, Smith received the honor in front of record crowds during his CMA Fest Riverfront Stage performance.

“It has been a childhood dream of mine to achieve a national No. 1 song,” says Smith. “Now, with this GOLD certification, that dream has been amplified. To my incredible Wheelhouse team, the confidence of country radio, my incomparable band, crew and support team, my family and friends, and all those who make up Yee Yee Nation – I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Adding to the excitement, Smith’s newly released “Happens Like That” impacted radio yesterday and was the #1 most added song at Mediabase with 59 first week stations. The single is the first off his anticipated sophomore Wheelhouse album, slated to come out this fall.
