Church’s “Chief” Certified Gold

Eric Church‘s latest album Chief has been certified Gold by the RIAA for shipments exceeding 500,000 units.

Capitol labelmate Keith Urban surprised Church with a plaque marking the occasion during a recent stop in Milwaukee on Urban’s 2011 Get Closer World Tour. They also performed one of Chief’s stand-out tracks, “Springsteen,” for the sold-out crowd.

Chief debuted in August with strong sales of 145,000 units.
