    Presley strikes gold for 50-year-old song

    Presley strikes gold for 50-year-old song
    Elvis Presley's 1954 single "Good Rockin' Tonight" has been certified gold, pushing his total U.S. single sales past 50 million.

    The Recording Industry Association of America presented Elvis Presley Enterprises a special sales award during a ceremony at Graceland on Jan. 8, the 70th anniversary of Presley's birth.

    The latest certification, representing 500,000 in domestic sales, solidifies Presley's status as the artist with the most certified singles sold.

    Elton John comes in second, with more than 21 million singles sold.

    Having sold more than 116 million albums in the U.S., Presley also remains the best-selling solo artist.

    Last month, Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis' sole heir, sold Elvis Presley Enterprises for $100 million in a bid to expand the singer's legacy.

    Viva Elvis!!
