Jason Aldean’s Night Train has rolled into double-platinum territory, according to statistics released Thursday (Nov. 13) by the Recording Industry Association of America.
The RIAA’s figures from the month of October show the album has shipped over 2 million units in the U.S. since its release in 2012.
This is Aldean’s second multiplatinum album, following 2010’s My Kinda Party, which has sold over 3 million units to date. Jason Aldean and Relentless were previously awarded platinum certifications.
A platinum album is awarded after shipment of 1 million units.

A platinum single is awarded to signify a combined total of 1 million units, based on figures for digital sales and song streams.
Florida Georgia Line are also currently approaching diamond status with their debut single “Cruise,” a rarely-achieved award signifying 10 million steams and sales.
Gold singles, which signify a combined total of 500,000 units of streaming and sales, include Brantley Gilbert’s “Small Town Throwdown” (featuring Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett) and Cole Swindell’s “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight.”
