Carrie Underwood Earns More Gold and Platinum
Carrie Underwood is soon going to need to find another wall to place all of her awards and accolades.
Underwood was surprised following her ‘Sound of Music’ rehearsal in New York City last week by Gary Overton, the Chairman and CEO of her record label, Sony Music. The label executive personally delivered three plaques commemorating new RIAA certifications to the songstress.
‘Good Girl’ reached double platinum status for more than two million downloads, while ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ was certified platinum for sales in excess of one million units, and her debut DVD, ‘The Blown Away Tour: LIVE’ earned gold status, selling more than 500,000 units.
The Oklahoma native could bring home even more metal later this year. She is nominated for three CMA Awards, for Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for ‘Blown Away,’ and Music Video of the Year, also for ‘Blown Away.’
Underwood and Brad Paisley will co-host the evening for the sixth consecutive year. The 47th annual CMA Awards will air live on ABC at 8PM ET on Nov. 6.
The live production of ‘The Sound of Music,’ which also stars ‘True Blood’ star Stephen Moyer, will air on NBC on Dec. 5.
