Little Big Town’s ‘Tornado’ Album Goes Platinum

Little Big Town has reason to celebrate today. The award-winning foursome’s latest album ‘Tornado’ has achieved certified Platinum status after selling more than one million units.

Back in September 2012, when LBT released ‘Tornado,’ the album debuted at No. 1 on the country charts and spent five weeks in the top slot. In addition to the album’s success, several singles from ‘Tornado’ have been getting tons of airplay.

The album’s first single, ‘Pontoon,’ spent two weeks at the top of the country radio chart, and scored a CMA award for Single of the Year. The song went double Platinum, which helped the band to earn a Grammy award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

The record’s title-track also peaked at No. 1 and has since sold more than 800,000 units. Now, the third single, ‘Your Side of the Bed,’ is taking its turn in the limelight.

The emotional song is much different than fun anthems like ‘Tornado’ and ‘Pontoon,’ but that hasn’t stopped it from getting great reviews. ‘Your Side of the Bed’ is a subtle, yet emotional, song that details how it feels when a relationship starts to unravel.

We’re sure that LBT would like to stop and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate their most recent success, but it’s not likely that the foursome will have much time to hoot and holler. Currently, the group is on tour with Keith Urban, and they’ll be burning up the road for the rest of the summer.
