Rising star Dustin Lynch thought he was just appearing on a guest panel at the RIAA Live event at the organization’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. June 26, but when he arrived, an official RIAA-certified Platinum plaque was waiting for him, commemorating one million sales and streams of his No. 1 single, “Where It’s At."

Lynch was totally surprised by the honor, which was presented to him on stage at the event by RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman in front of an audience filled with music industry VIPs and tastemakers.

"What a dream come true,” Lynch says in a press release. “I have an incredible team of people that believe in me and my music and work so hard and spend time away from their families...this is theirs as much as mine. Big thanks to everyone at country radio that believed in this song and chapter 2 of my music!"

“Where It’s At,” the title track to Lynch’s sophomore album, is the second Platinum single he has earned after “Cowboys and Angels,” the lead-off single from his debut self-titled album released in 2012.

After receiving the plaque, Lynch performed an intimate acoustic set for the RIAA Live crowd, including the two Platinum hits and his latest single, “Hell of a Night."

The artist is currently on the road opening for Luke Bryan on his Kick the Dust Up tour, as well as hitting the festivals this summer and headlining club dates in between.
