GOLDMINE COVER & SPECIAL AWARD FOR TRUE KING OF POP
March 29,  2018   -   Goldmine   /   Elvis Express Radio
Goldmine’s May 2018 issue (with Elvis on the cover) gets in-depth on this two-part HBO series The Searcher and its soundtrack (available in various formats and collectible box
sets). The May issue will be on sale April 9 at select record stores, Barnes & Noble and Books A Million stores.

Also pictured is John Jackson, SVP A&R for Legacy Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment and Priscilla Presley standing with the latest award that has been added to the King's
enormous collection of music awards and accolades.  

Announced earlier this month, Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment and RCA Records celebrate the ongoing impact of Elvis Presley, whose all time
RIAA certified album sales and streams in the US now top 146.5 million units.

Elvis has racked up more Gold Records (101) than any other act and is the
only artist still earning RIAA certifications whose connection to the association dates back to its
founding.

In 1958, the inaugural year of the RIAA Gold & Platinum program, Elvis’ “Hard Headed Woman” became one of the RIAA’s first three Gold singles and the very first in Elvis’ ongoing
string of Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certifications.  Over the past year, 17 Elvis Presley catalog titles have been awarded RIAA certifications, with 11 of those albums reaching
Gold (or Platinum) status for the very first time.
