Nichols goes digital gold with Gimmie That Girl
Monday, July 19, 2010
– Joe Nichols' multi week number 1 hit single Gimmie That Girl
was certified gold by the RIAA, selling more than 500,000 digital downloads.
Eight weeks ago, the Show Dog-Universal Music artist's single topped the charts for the third consecutive week, making it the first multi-week number 1 single for 2010 and Nichols only the sixth artist since 2008 to achieve such a goal on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts. The song remains the top recurrent single this week.
The Shape I'm In is the follow-up and goes for radio adds today. The song is also included on Nichols' "Old Things New" CD. Both singles were written by Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip.
