The Recording Industry Association of America® (RIAA) has announced its Gold & Platinum Class Of 2020, recognizing artists who have achieved Gold or Platinum status for the very first time. For the inaugural class, 53 artists from several different genres earned their first Gold or Platinum certification.
Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett earned a multi-Platinum certification for her smash breakout hit, “I Hope,” and Gold for “The Good Ones.”
“Wow. 2020 has brought me more firsts than I could have ever imagined, and to be included in the RIAA’s class of ‘First Timers’ is an honor. Seeing ‘The Good Ones’ and ‘I Hope’ grow over the past year has been so exciting and rewarding. To be recognized with these certifications is the cherry on top of a truly surprising year. Thank you to the good Lord above, my husband, my family, my team, my fans and to the RIAA for helping to make this dream come true.”Gabby Barrett
