Lady Antebellum’s sophomore album, “Need You Now,” has been certified triple platinum, with sales of more than 3 million.
The band with Augusta roots also was crowned with a distinction from Billboard: Its songs have spent more weeks at No. 1 in the past 12 months than any other country artist – a figure no doubt owed to the lengthy chart run and quadruple platinum success of the title track.
Lady A is up for five trophies at the Nov.10 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year.
The band is also in the midst of its first headlining tour, which plays the Fox Theatre Nov. 12.
