Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own the Night’ Album Goes Platinum
After only four weeks on the shelves, Lady Antebellum's latest album, 'Own the Night,' has been certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of one million copies. The hit album has produced two smash singles, including the lead-off release and multi-week No. 1 'Just a Kiss' and their latest Top 10 song, 'We Owned the Night.'
The success of the two singles has helped the group sell a total of seven million albums worldwide to date. To keep the good news rolling in for Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley, they just picked up their third consecutive CMA Award earlier this week for Vocal Group of the Year.
"It's been a dizzying and exciting few months launching this album, but it's also really energizing to see how the fans are reacting to some of the songs on our new record," says Haywood, according to a press release. "The reaction both in the States and overseas has been a huge confidence booster as we are getting ready to launch our first big arena tour. We couldn't be more excited to get back out on the road!"
Next month, Lady A are nominated for Favorite Country Band, Duo or Group for the 2011 American Music Awards. The trio will also be honored as one of CMT's Artists of the Year in December. The first leg of their Own the Night 2011 Tour launches tonight (Nov. 11) in Knoxville, Tenn. Click here for a complete list of dates where the tour will be stopping.
