    RIAA awards to Elvis?

    I have heard rumors for months that Elvis would receive many more RIAA awards during this week and his album total would go up, has anyone heard any news about this?

    Re: RIAA awards to Elvis?

    This article was published on ElvisNews.com on 12/1/13 - http://elvisnews.com/news.aspx/new-certifications/14353

    The same information was also posted on Elvisinfonet.com, but with the following additional details:

    Many of the soundtrack albums will also be tabulated with new certifications coupled with new upgrades in certifications for other Presley albums.

    These Soundtrack albums (as mentioned yesterday) should also receive posthumous RIAA certifications in 2014. Many of these are soundtracks that charted in the top ten when released, as noted below.

    1. Fun In Acapulco - will be certified Gold. Charted #3 on US charts :
    2. It Happened At The World's Fair - will be certified Gold. Charted #4 on US charts:
    3. Kissin Cousins - will be certified Gold. Charted #6 on US charts:
    4. Harum Scarum - will be certified Gold. Charted #8 on US charts:
    5. Paradise Hawaiian Style - will be certified Gold. Charted #15 on US Charts
    6. Spinout - will be certified Gold. Charted #18 on US charts:
    7. Double Trouble - will be certified Gold. Charted #47 on US charts:
    8. Clambake - will be certified Gold. Charted #40 on US charts:
    9. Speedway - will be certified Gold. Charted #82 on US charts:

    It seems that the Presley estate was tallying the amount of records to be certified by the RIAA all at one time. Presley is already the most certified artist in the history of popular music with a combined total of 257 certifications for albums and singles. He is way ahead of the second place Beatles who have a combined total of 148 certifications. I cannot believe that Elvis is still under certified by the Recording Industry Association of America.

    EIN thanks VictorManuelaBreu & Brian Quinn.

    So it looks like Elvis will receive several award upgrades during the Birthday Celebration Festivities this week! Perhaps someone who was at Graceland can/will fill us all in on the details??

    That story was posted by someone named Victor on the FECC forum back in December.

    He claimed to have been given that information by the Eternally yours fan club from an email.

    It has since been proven untrue.

    I doubt Elvis gets very many more updates because his label doesn't want to keep paying for all these audits and then only see a small uptick in sales.
