Certified Platinum (and a certified heater, obviously).
Zach Bryanand Kacey Musgraves’duet “I Remember Everything” was officially certified Platinum by the RIAA today, meaning it has moved over one million units since it was released in August.
That’s pretty damn fast, to say the least, as it was just certified Gold in November.
Clearly, people are loving it and spinning it like crazy, and it’s still the easy standout from Zach’s self-titled record in my very humble opinion:
The song has already peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 all-genre chart, a first for both artists, and has also been sent to country radio as a single where it’s currently steadily climbing the charts.
In addition, it’s nominated for TWO 2024 Grammy Awards in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song categories, and it will be a cryin’ shame if we don’t at least get a performance of it from these two together live during the show.
Zach took to X (Twitter) this afternoon to thank fans for listening:
“Hey guys. ‘I Remember Everything’ went Platinum today, thank you times a million and I love y’all so much.”
Hey guys I Remember Everything went platinum today thank you times a million and I love yall so much
The heartbreaking tune was written by Zach and Kacey, and finds the narrators reminiscing on a past relationship and admitting that they remember every little moment and fleeting evening they spent together.
There’s something so forlorn and magical, yet heartbreaking about it, and I simply cannot get enough still.
Kacey’s pure and beautiful voice contrasts so beautifully with Zach’s more gruff, raw vocals, and this is by far and away one of my favorite singles released this year… and I can say that with 100% certainty now, as the official radio single release timeframe is over now until we get to January.
