UMG Nashville executives surprised Carrie Underwood last week during CMA Awards rehearsals, with a plaque commemorating the RIAA Gold Certifications of her Cry Pretty album and “Cry Pretty” single.

Released Sept. 14, Cry Pretty is the biggest all-genre debut by a female in 2018. The critically-acclaimed album also debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Album Charts, making Underwood the only woman in history to land four country albums on the top of the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.
