Many of Nashville’s artists earned top metal awards this fall, according to the October tally of Gold and Platinum certifications released yesterday (11/30) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Lady Antebellum’s latest album Own the Night (Capitol Records Nashville) was certified Platinum in only one month. The recently named CMA Vocal Group of the Year now has three career Platinum (or higher) album awards under its belt, with 2008’s Lady Antebellum currently double-Platinum and 2010’s Need You Now triple-Platinum.
Capitol Nashville continued its hot streak as Luke Bryan and Eric Church collected their second Gold album awards for their respective sophomore summer releases Tailgates & Tanlines, and Chief.
RIAA also awarded Eli Young Band with its first-time Platinum download certification for “Crazy Girl” (Republic Nashville).
Additionally, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood earned a Platinum download award for their hit duet “Remind Me” (Artista Nashville). Paisley’s “Old Alabama” (Artista Nashville) also scored a second digital Platinum single, and Miranda Lambert claimed one as well for “White Liar” (Columbia Nashville).
