Nickel Creek have been presented with their first platinum record for Sugar Hill Records debut, NICKEL CREEK. Following their sound check at Austin City Limits Live At The Moody Theater, the trio was surprised with special plaques to commemorate the accomplishment. On hand to present Nickel Creek with their platinum were Sugar Hill General Manager Cliff Oâ€™Sullivan and Sugar Hill Vice President of A&R Gary Paczosa (who also engineered Nickel Creek.) Members of Austinâ€™s musical elite, Terry Lickona, producer of Austin City Limits, and John Kunz, owner of Waterloo Records, also joined in on the impromptu ceremony. â€œWe wanted to be able to share in this moment with Chris, Sean and Sara and where better than this beautiful theater!â€ Cliff Oâ€™Sullivan said. â€œSelling a million albums is a tremendous achievement and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate it with Nickel Creek and applaud the enduring success of the album, which is a cornerstone of Sugar Hillâ€™s musical legacy.â€ Nickel Creek, the self-titled album from the acoustic trio, was Certified Platinum by the Recording Industry of America earlier this month, having officially hit one million units of the record sold. The trio reaches another milestone this year as they celebrate 25 years of making music together.
