Up For a Diamond Award

Receiving one of the Recording Industry Association of America’s new Diamond Awards isn’t difficult, if you sell more than 10 million albums in the United States. Titles by such country heavyweights as Garth Brooks and Shania Twain, who are among 62 contenders, are up for the honors that will be unveiled on March 16 in New York. The RIAA is an organization that certifies gold and platinum albums.
