Way to go, Eric Church!  Homeboy just had his album, Carolina, certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.  That means it's sold over 500,000 copies.

Carolina includes Eric's hits, Smoke A Little Smoke and Love Your Love The Most. Both of those singles have already gone gold, themselves, having both been downloaded over 500,000 times.

Eric says:

“It’s always been my goal to make records that are a complete body of work and not just random songs strung together—personally, I still love to put on a record and let it play top to bottom,” Church shares. “It is a dream come true that CAROLINA is now a gold record, and it is proof there are still people out there who think about music the same way I do.  I owe this to every fan that told someone about this record, and to them I say ‘thank you!’”

Eric's got a new album, Chief, (his third)  hits stores July 26th, and features his latest single, Homeboy.
