While not yet formally listed on the RIAA’s website, word has emerged that Chris Stapleton’s “Traveller” has attained platinum status in the United States.

The platinum certification confirms a US unit count of at least 1 million; one unit is equal to 1 sale, 10 track sales or 1500 on-demand audio or video track streams.

News of the certification comes as Stapleton’s critically acclaimed — and Grammy-winning — 2015 release returns to the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart.

According to Nielsen Music, “Traveller” sold a genre-leading 43,850 US copies during the February 19-25 tracking week. It reclaims the Country Albums #1 position from Joey + Rory’s “Hymns,” which slips to #2 after debuting at the apex last week.

Through February 25, the album boasted a cumulative US sales total of nearly 958,000.
