Jason Aldean’s Night Train Rolls to Double-Platinum Territory

Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and More Also Earn Platinum Awards

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.

In the singles category, Florida Georgia Line earned platinum status for their latest release, “Dirt.” This marks the duo’s sixth single to reach platinum or multi-platinum status behind “Cruise” (eight-times platinum), “Get Your Shine On” (double platinum), “This Is How We Roll” (double platinum), “Round Here” and “Stay.”

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.

Other country singles achieving platinum status in October were Sam Hunt’s “Leave the Night On” (his first platinum certification) and Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood’s “Somethin’ Bad.”

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.”
