O’Neal Strikes Gold

Jamie O’Neal’s debut album, Shiver, has been certified gold for shipping over 500,000 copies, according to Mercury Records. “My biggest hope was that people would identify with the music we created,” O’Neal said. “I’m ecstatic that it seems we’ve accomplished what we set out to do. It has been an incredible team effort and I thank everyone at my label, my management, radio and especially the fans. I just hope it keeps getting bigger.” Shiver includes the No. 1 hits “There Is No Arizona” and “When I Think About Angels.” The title track is at No. 37 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. 10/01/01
