Mercury Nashville Recording artist Travis Denning is racking up another accolade, with the news that his recent No. One hit single “After A Few” has officially been certified GOLD by the RIAA, with over 500,000 units of the song being consumed since its release. Denning was surprised by his team at Universal Music Group, Red Light Management, RED Creative and WME with a drive-by celebratory parade in Nashville, TN to mark the milestone, available to watch here. Denning co-wrote “After A Few” with Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver, and just released his instantaneous follow up single to country radio, “Where That Beer’s Been,” that is already being praised as “made for summer fun” (Taste Of Country) as Denning “cranks up the amps to highlight his guitar skills” (Rolling Stone).
“Definitely not the normal way to celebrate a gold record, but I was once again blown away by the love and support from my team,” shared Travis Denning. “The drive-by congratulations was awesome and hilarious. So happy and thankful to be able to finally say ‘After A Few’ is GOLD!”
A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning first made waves showcasing his “future star power” (Billboard) with the release of his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs” and most recently his No. One “sleek anthem” (Music Row) “After A Few.” Denning kicked off 2020 as direct support on Dustin Lynch’s STAY COUNTRY TOUR and has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO, Riley Green and his first headlining “Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour.” With over 281 million streams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted for his head-turning sound and was selected this past year as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and more. Denning’s newest songwriting cut includes Michael Ray’s Top 20 single “Her World Or Mine.” For more information, visit travisdenning.com.
