    The caption for the image with Randy, Carrie, and RIAA's Cary from Hits Daily Double:

    Sony Nashville chief Randy Goodman (l) and RIAA CEO Cary Sherman bestow a plaque on 19/Arista Nashville superstar Carrie Underwood certifying 28 million digital single sales (pertaining to 20 songs). Later, Randy and Carrie toasted her success with a glass of champagne, and gently requested that Cary stop yelling "Yee-haw."
    lol

The music video has 43.5 million views on Carrie's Vevo plus probably streams on other streaming sites, so that would help get it to 2x plat certification.
    Cowboy Casanova was certified 2x Platinum a long time ago-- so it should be eligible for an upgrade at some point due to streaming.

    JAD definitely could cross 2x platinum. I don't think LN, UI, or TH are near 2x platinum status yet.

    Not by a long shot. The latest numbers I found put CC's sales at 2,118,000. Let's just say 2.2 million. That's a long way off from 3x. Even with streaming (which is 100 streams = 1 sales toward certification) she would need a little over 80,000,000 U.S. streams of CC to get that remaining 800,000 of pure/streaming sales to a 3x platinum certification. It's at 20 million on Youtube and 11.6 million on Spotify for a total of 31.6 million. There are other platforms, but their figures are probably negligible. So even if all those streams were from the U.S., it would still need 48.4 million streams - more than double what it's currently at. That's not going to happen for a 6-year old single.

    ^ bummer. Oh well. 2x Platinum is still pretty dang good.

    I am really proud as a peacock today to see Carrie at number 1 for Both Men and Women in country. That is a BIG statement especially in the wake of Salad Gate and all the rumblings that men sell better than women because they are more popular. Not even close to being true.

    I hope the radio programmers all take note of this-- that Carrie beat their precious men out-- even Jason Aldean who is a big digital seller.

    Wish the CMAS would notice too- and give a damn. lol

    Wall Bling: Carrie UnderwoodThe RIAA reports 19/Arista's Carrie Underwood has reached 28 million in RIAA digital single certifications, making her the current top country artist on their Digital Single Ranking. Underwood's position was spurred by the recent gold certification of "Little Toy Guns" and the quadruple platinum certification of "Before He Cheats." More here.

    They should really do a quick scan before releasing that. They said BHC got quadruple platinum, that's only 4x platinum, when RIAA says 5x platinum, which would be quintuple platinum.

    I'd like to think I have that much power, but they probably caught it themselves. No, you know what, I choose to believe I have that much power, lol!

    Hey, you never know! I once got quoted by an Ottawa newspaper when Mike was traded to Nashville. They picked up my post from CF, lol.

    Really! That's pretty cool. I guess we all have some power that we underestimate here.

    I'm thinking by the time CUX1 hits 400k in sales, it will be certified Platinum.

    Not surprising at all to me. That's how they roll.

    After her last performance before having Isaiah, one of the guy writers kept writing articles insinuating that Carrie is over - nothing else ever -

    It was disgusting. Windmills got quite vocal about it (gosh, I love her).
