Twain Gets Third Diamond Certification

Shania Twain has become the first artist to achieve RIAA Diamond Award status for selling 10 million copies each of three consecutive albums. Universal Music Group Nashville chairman Luke Lewis presented Twain a plaque commemorating her latest career achievement Wednesday night (April 21) in Nashville on the red carpet at the CMT 2004 Flame Worthy Video Music Awards. With Twain’s 2002 album Up! now hitting the 10-million level, 1995’s The Woman in Me is certified for shipments of 12 million copies and her 1997 follow-up Come on Over for 19 million.
