Carrie Underwood Moved to Tears During Surprise Presentation as “Cry Pretty” Certified Platinum

Carrie Underwood was moved to tears during a surprise presentation as her 2018 album, Cry Pretty, was certified Platinum by the RIAA.

UMG Nashville CEO Mike Dungan and president Cindy Mabe surprised Carrie with a plaque commemorating her album’s new platinum designation—which represents 1 million units—during her artist interview at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville on Feb. 21. In addition, four singles from Cry Pretty were also certified by the RIAA, including the Platinum-certified “The Champion” (1 million units) and the Gold-certified “Cry Pretty,” “Love Wins” and “Southbound” (500,000 units).

Carrie co-wrote nine songs on Cry Pretty, which she co-produced with David Garcia.

“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,” said Carrie.

Cry Pretty reached No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in September 2018, joining Carrie’s three previous No. 1 albums on the chart: 2007’s Carnival Ride, 2009’s Play On and 2012’s Blown Away. She is the first woman in country music history to top the chart four times.
