Sam Hunt Hits Double Platinum With "Take Your Time"

Rising star's second single becomes first single country single (which gained most of its airplay in the year) to be certified Double Platinum in 2015.

With his record sales and single sales continuing to soar daily, it should come as no surprise that Sam Hunt's chart-topping hit "Take Your Time" has officially been certified double platinum for sales exceeding the two million marker.

It has only been one year and one week since Hunt released a four-song album preview while his debut single, “Leave the Night On,” was just making its way up the country charts. Since then, Hunt has had a near meteoric rise to the country music forefront. The Platinum-selling “Leave the Night On” quickly topped sales and airplay charts, and Hunt delivered country music’s best-selling debut album since 2011 with Montevallo. He became the fastest debut country artist to earn a Gold album since 2012 when Montevallo reached the 500,000 unit sales benchmark in April. Montevallo remains one of the top-selling albums and is currently the all-genre No. 10 Best-Selling Digital Album year-to-date. Hunt, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Taylor Swift are the only artists who have remained in the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 since the start of 2015.

Hunt is currently out on tour with Lady Antebellum on the Wheels Up 2015 Tour. For a list of all upcoming tour dates, visit
