LAMBERT becomes the only Country artist in the 50-year history of the Country albums chart to have each of her first five albums debut at #1.
“THANK YOU to the music lovers who believe in albums and spent your hard-earned money on 16 songs! 16 songs that all say something important to me,” said MIRANDA. “I hope that they also speak to you, and I hope you enjoy listening to ‘Platinum.’ Thank you to the incredible musicians, songwriters, producers and artists that put this record together. I’m the luckiest girl in the world, blessed with the best fans!”
