“Some Hearts” goes Quintuple Platinum

Congratulations are definitely in order for Carrie Underwood.   According to Ken Barnes at Idol Chatter  Carrie  Underwood’s  CD, “Some Hearts” has been officially certified by the RIAA  for 5 million units shipped.   To date, the wildly successful CD has sold 4.69 million units total.

Also, according to Idol Chatter, from a BMG release:

Some Hearts has now become the best-selling, single-disc country album by a solo female in the new millennium.

“Some Hearts is also the best-selling, single-disc country album by a solo artist (male or female) in the last six years – since Tim McGraw Greatest Hits, released in November of 2000. ”

“And with January 10 SoundScan information, Some Hearts earns the further distinction of becoming the best-selling, single-disc country album by any artist (solo, male, female, group, duo, etc.) since the Dixie Chicks Home, released in August of 2002.”

Impressive!
