Reunion Records band Tenth Avenue North recently commemorated 1 million records sold during its career. During Sunday’s (March 16) Winter Jam concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, unsuspecting fan Cody Miller purchased the group’s 1 millionth record. The band surprised Miller with signs, backstage dancing and even a drum line.

“One million records is an unbelievable milestone for us,” says Tenth Avenue North. “We never would have thought it possible when we started playing together in college 14 years ago. What’s even more incredible is to think of all the people and stories that number represents. We are blown away and grateful for all the people who have connected with this music we have been given the privilege to create.”
