RECORDS/Arista NashvilleNewcomer Matt Stell is now officially a golden boy.

The six-foot-seven former college basketball player found out Monday night — in front of a capacity crowd at the impromptu Nashville tradition known as Whiskey Jam — that his breakthrough hit, “Prayed for You,” has been certified gold.

“Prayed for You” is also the Arkansas native’s first top ten hit, and has been streamed more than 90 million times so far. You’ll find it on his EP Everywhere But On.

Matt joins the next leg of Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour on September 26.
