Carrie Underwood‘s Greatest Hits: Decade #1 has been certified platinum by the RIAA. The accomplishment makes Underwood the only country artist to release an album to platinum success since Greatest Hits: Decade #1 was issued in December 2014.

The 25-song, double-disc collection spotlights the success of Underwood’s first 10 years of music and introduced two new No. 1 songs: the Grammy-winning “Something in the Water,” as well as “Little Toy Guns,” the song that earned Underwood her current Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance. According to RIAA, each unit in a multi-disc set counts as one unit toward album certification.

In addition, “Little Toy Guns” has been RIAA-certified gold, while “Something in the Water” is now RIAA platinum.

Upon release, Greatest Hits: Decade #1 debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with first-week sales of 94,000 according to Nielsen Music.

Underwood is currently in rehearsals for the Jan. 30 launch of her new arena headline tour, The Storyteller Tour−Stories in the Round. At radio now is “Heartbeat,” the new single from her Storyteller album.
