Kacey Musgraves Earns Gold and Platinum Certifications
Kacey Musgraves‘ ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ has officially been certified a Gold record, selling over 500,000 copies. Two of the singles off the album have also been certified, one of which may be a surprise to county radio.
Musgraves’ 2012 single ‘Merry Go ‘Round’ was certified Platinum, and her controversial release ‘Follow Your Arrow’ has been given Gold.
The certification of ‘Follow Your Arrow’ is particularly impressive considering the fact that the song, which the Examiner refers to as a “gay rights anthem,” didn’t do very well at country radio, which is likely due in no small part to some of its controversial lyrics.
The singer took to her Twitter account to exclaim her excitement about the triple certification.
WOW!! Just found out about Same Trailer going gold and Merry Go ‘Round going PLATINUM!! I can’t believe it. THANK YOU, EVERYONE!!❤️
