Elle King and Dierks Bentley celebrate Worth A Shot reaching RIAA Gold certification

(P O P) Elle King and Dierks Bentley were presented with a Gold Record award for their duet "Worth A Shot", after the track from King's "Come Get Your Wife" album received RIAA Gold certification. Here is the official announcement:

With the summer tour season at full throttle, Elle King rides out of Calgary after her stunning show at the Stampede Corral Arena and back into the U.S. for a string of sold-out shows out west.

She'll work her way back east later this month but not before she takes the stage as co-host and performer on "CMA Fest," The Music Event of the Summer! The three-hour primetime special was filmed over four days in Nashville at the CMA Music Festival, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The special airs Wednesday, July 19 at 8/7c and ABC and is available the next day on Hulu.

In addition to co-hosting with Dierks Bentley and Lainey Wilson, King performs two songs on the special including her award-winning smash single "Drunk (And I Don't Want To Go Home)" with Miranda Lambert, as well as joining Wilson and Tanya Tucker for "Texas (When I Die)."

While backstage, King and co-host, duet partner and friend Bentley were surprised with a Certified Gold plaque for their song "Worth A Shot," which is featured on her critically acclaimed album Come Get Your Wife.
