Carrie Underwood celebrated the RIAA Platinum certification of her latest album, Cry Pretty, as well as four certified singles from the album this past Friday (2/21) in Nashville.

Following her CRS (Country Radio Seminar) Artist Interview at the Omni Hotel, Underwood was surprised onstage with a Platinum plaque from UMG Nashville CEO & Chairman, Mike Dungan, and President, Cindy Mabe, for her sixth studio album.

Underwood said from the stage, “This means a lot, because I feel like this is the project that I’ve done, and the album that I’ve done, that is the most ‘me.’ I’m honored and I’m humbled, and God is good.”

The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making Carrie the only woman to land four country albums at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.

The album was also the best-selling female debut in 2018 and she continues to hold the record as RIAA’s #1 certified female artist for Digital Singles.
