– Joe Nichols' CD, "III" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, as announced today by Universal Records South's Senior Partners Tim DuBois and Tony Brown, meaning the disc has sold more than 500,000 copies.
This is Nichols' second gold CD ("Man With A Memory," Nichols' debut CD was certified gold in 2003, and is nearing the platinum mark).
Earlier this month, the lead single from " "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off," was certified gold for digital downloads in excess of 100,000 and last year hit number 1 on the Billboad country song chart.
"In my opinion, there is no better young singer making records today. In the hands of an artist like Joe Nichols, a really good country song becomes a great country record," Brown said.
DuBois added, "The fact that this CD has been certified gold based on one single record's airplay is testament to the strength of Joe Nichols and his music."
Nichols' second single from "III," "Size Matters (Someday)," has gone Top 20.
