It might only be six weeks into 2012, but that isn’t stopping Chris Young from already having a huge year! He’s gone gold not only once, but twice this week for two of his latest singles: “You” and “Voices.” The Academy of Country Music nominated singer had already kicked the year off with a sold-out performance on Miranda Lambert‘s “On Fire” tour, a performance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, ACM nominations for both Male Vocalist and Single of The Year, and his fifth consecutive number one single.
The RIAA officially certified both “You” and “Voices” this week and presented Chris with gold plaques to celebrate the status. The now-gold single “You” was a co-write by Chris and Luke Laird, and the second single from his newly released “NEON.” Chris became only the second solo artist to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart with five most recent singles.
After hitting number one last year with “Voices,” Chris broke a 25-year old record. He’s only the second artist in modern-era history of the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart to re-release a single and hit number one.
