Congratulations are in order for Luke Bryan. The country singer’s latest album Kill the Lights has been certified platinum by the RIAA.

According to a press release, Bryan learned the big news while rehearsing for his performances at the MusiCares Gala and the 2016 Annual Grammy Awards, where he paid tribute to Lionel Richie.

Bryan released Kill the Lights last August and it debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts. Kill the Lights includes his latest No. 1 single, “Home Alone Tonight” featuring Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town. The album was named the best-selling country album of 2015, as well as the tenth biggest selling album on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Year-End list.

Bryan kicks off his 2016 Kill the Lights Tour on Thursday, on which he will perform in over 60 cities and five stadiums with Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.

While Bryan is no doubt enjoying the success of his album, friend Blake Shelton continues to ground him by poking fun at the singer on social media and to the paparazzi. On Saturday night (Feb. 13) Shelton was caught leaving Beverly Hills restaurant Mastro’s when TMZ asked who he hoped to be sitting next to at the Grammys. “Luke Bryan, but he never gets nominated,” he answered.

While Bryan and Shelton may have strong words for each other (it’s in jest, of course), Bryan can find solace in the fact that Carrie Underwood said he’d be her country artist pick to survive a zombie apocalypse.
