Four Albums Earn New RIAA Numbers

The best-selling live album in history, Garth Brooks’ Double Live, has been certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of more than 15 million units. However, because it is a two-piece set, actual shipments for Double Live sit at 7.5 million copies. Other recent RIAA certifications go to Brooks & Dunn’s Hard Workin’ Man (5 million shipped), Blake Shelton (gold, with 500,000 shipped) and Gary Allan’s Alright Guy (gold). 08/08/02
