The party, hosted by ASCAP and held at Nashville hot spot Fat Bottom Brewery, held a shoulder-to-shoulder crowd who cheered Davis as Universal Music Group Nashville Chairman and CEO Mike Dungan announced the track was recently certified Platinum by the RIAA. To celebrate, Davis has released a special acoustic version of “Singles You Up” (listen HERE) .
