Country superstar Keith Urban’s 2016 album Ripcord has been officially certified Gold in Canada, which the singer announced last Saturday during the second night of shows at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. Midway through his set, Urban took a moment to announce the news and show his award plaque to his fans, thanking them for their continued support.
“All I can say is the record only came out a little while ago and you all already did this,” said Urban, as seen in a video of the special moment posted to his YouTube account. ”I love you Canada, thank you so much.”
The plaque also represents the certifications of Ripcord singles “Wasted Time,” certified Gold, and “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” certified Platinum.

Brett Eldredge, who’s supporting Urban for the remainder of his summer North American tour, was also presented with a Gold award plaque during the Toronto tour stop. Eldredge was presented with a plaque backstage by Warner Music Canada for the track “Lose My Mind,” which is his first Canadian Gold single since “Don’t Ya,” certified in 2013.
