Rising RCA Nashville artist Niko Moon has taken the country music scene by storm, earning his first ever RIAA double-Platinum certified No.1 single with his debut track “Good Time” and kicking off his first headlining tour with a bang with consecutive sold-out shows this past weekend.
Moon was surprised with the news of his amazing achievement by the staff from Sony Music Nashville, Make Wake Artists and RIAA while he was sound checking before the first sold-out show of his Good Time Tour at Exit/In, a local venue in Nashville, this past Friday.
“Good Time” has accumulated over two million U.S. sales and is the only debut single to date that has reached 2x Platinum status since March 13, 2020. The track has exceeded 414 million on-demand streams across the world and became the first debut single to concurrently reach the top of the Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts since 2014.
The Georgia native performed his megahit on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, GMA 3 (where reggae icon Shaggy joined Moon) and the 2021 CMT Music Awards, where the track secured a nomination for “Breakthrough Video of the Year.”

Fans, along with critics, are itching to see the singer on his headlining tour, with EMI Records Nashville artist Kylie Morgan joining as support.
The SEASC 2021 Songwriter of the Year boasts a total of seven No.1 songwriting credits and has co-written a whopping five chart-toppers for big names including Zac Brown Band, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Ashley Monroe and many more.
Moon also co-penned 13 out of the 14 songs for his debut album Good Time. Produced by Moon and longtime collaborator Joshua Murty, the singer broke yet another record by earning the third-most first week sales for a debut album this year.
