    Julianne Hough’s album actually made it to #1?

    According to Wikipedia, it made it to #1 Country and #3 on the everything chart–but it has not gone gold.
    Funny, back in the ’90s, artists like Mark Chesnutt, Joe Diffie, Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin would regularly have platinum albums– that never even made the top 5.
