Kane Brown is celebrating some new hard-earned diamond hardware this holiday season. On Thursday, the RIAA announced that his multi-week No. 1 song "Heaven" had surpassed the 10 million milestone to become just the eighth country single to achieve the prestigious honor.
Brown's fellow diamond-selling artists Luke Combs, Hillary Scott, Tyler Hubbard and Darius Rucker called to surprise him with the news.
"I just want to say congratulations and welcome to the diamond club," Scott said. "Your song heaven has obviously touched so many lives."
Combs added: "Welcome to the club, man. Super cool. Keep killing it. You've always been awesome. Let's hang out sometime."
"Something to be really proud of," Hubbard said. "Here's to some more diamonds, baby!"
Rucker rounded out the congratulatory messages.
"Welcome to the diamond club, congratulations."
The song was written by Shy Carter, Matt McGinn and Lindsay Rimes.
Lyrics include: Everybody's talkin' 'bout heaven like they just can't wait to go| Sayin' how it's gonna be so good, so beautiful
But lyin' next to you in this bed with you| I ain't convinced 'cause I don't know how| I don't know how heaven, heaven could be better than this
RIAA COO Michele Ballantyne said: "An incredible talent with 23 RIAA certified titles and accolade upon accolade across genres, today, we are thrilled to recognize Kane Brown's first Diamond for his single 'Heaven.' This enchanting hit has clearly struck a chord with fans – topping 10 million certified units! Congratulations to Kane, his creative partners, and RCA Nashville team on this rare milestone."
