Carrie Underwood was overcome with emotion when presented with a plaque certifying Cry Pretty as a Platinum album. Underwood was surprised by her record label team with the honor at the end of a conversation at CRS in Nashville last week.

UMG Nashville president Cindy Mabe honored Underwood, and with label CEO Mike Dungan on hand, Underwood fought through tears letting the audience know what the honor meant to her.

Cry Pretty becomes Underwood’s third Platinum album, along with four multi-Platinum albums. That total includes all six of her studio album and one greatest hits project. Additionally, she has nine Platinum and seven multi-Platinum singles. Her debut album Some Hearts remains her best selling album, certified eight-times Platinum.
