Little Big Townâ€™s â€˜Tornadoâ€™ Album Goes Platinum
22 July 2013 news
Little Big Town has reason to celebrate today. The award-winning foursomeâ€™s latest album â€˜Tornadoâ€™ has achieved certified Platinum status after selling more than one million units. Back in September 2012, when LBT released â€˜Tornado,â€™ the album debuted at No. 1 on the country charts and spent five weeks in the top slot. In addition to the albumâ€™s success, several singles from â€˜Tornadoâ€™ have been getting tons of airplay. The albumâ€™s first single, â€˜Pontoon,â€™ 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 recordâ€™s title-track also peaked at No. 1 and has since sold more than 800,000 units. Now, the third single, â€˜Your Side of the Bed,â€™ is taking its turn in the limelight. The emotional song is much different than fun anthems like â€˜Tornadoâ€™ and â€˜Pontoon,â€™ but that hasnâ€™t stopped it from getting great reviews. â€˜Your Side of the Bedâ€™ is a subtle, yet emotional, song that details how it feels when a relationship starts to unravel. Weâ€™re sure that LBT would like to stop and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate their most recent success, but itâ€™s not likely that the foursome will have much time to hoot and holler. Currently, the group is on tour with Keith Urban, and theyâ€™ll be burning up the road for the rest of the summer.
