Gretchen Wilson Triple Platinum
'Here For The Party' Tops Three Million
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- As Gretchen Wilson prepares for her first CMA Awards Show appearance, the amazing new singer/songwriter's debut album "Here For The Party" has been certified TRIPLE platinum for sales in excess of three million units. "Every million is a milestone," says Sony Nashville president John Grady, "but I don't want anybody to believe that we are anywhere near finished making plaques." The accomplishment further solidifies the five-time CMA Awards nominee's album as the highest-selling debut country album of 2004. She and Ashley Simpson are running neck-and-neck for the highest-selling debut album for any genre this year. The album initially broke a record when it entered Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart at #2 and stayed at the top of the Country Music Album Chart for a record nine weeks. Her debut single, the anthemic "Redneck Woman" spent a record six weeks at #1 and has just reached over 100,000 digital downloads, giving the single a Gold sales status. Gretchen is in DeKalb, Illinois today (Friday) for the kickoff of the much-anticipated Chevy Presents Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson: The American Revolution Tour. She'll return to Nashville to perform her emotional smash hit new single "When I Think About Cheatin'" on the CBS-broadcast CMA Awards. The following week she will perform "Redneck Woman" on the American Music Awards, where she is nominated for "Favorite Female Artist - Country Music" and "Favorite New Artist (All Genres)."
