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)."
