Update: RIAA Gold & Platinum Country for August 2017

Certified multi-platinum single awards for Billy Currington, Brett Young, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Eric Church and Keith Urban

Every month, the good folks at the RIAA tabulate single and album sales for the music industry.  And every month, they put out a list of every song and album that was certified Platinum (sales of one million copies) or Gold (sales of half a million copies) that month.

Now, times and technology has changed, and now the RIAA factors in streams when it calculates the Gold and Platinum certifications:

RIAA set the new Album Award formula of 1,500 on-demand audio and/or video song streams = 10 track sales = 1 album sale.

So, having said that, let’s get to the list:
