Daughtry has done it again! The rock group, fronted by American Idol alum Chris Daughtry, released their sophomore album Leave This Town in July and the band announced that their album has been certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.

The album had a strong showing from the start, entering the Billboard 200 chart, the Digital Albums Chart, and the Rock Chart at #1. This made Chris the first American Idol to have two consecutive #1 albums, which Carrie Underwood later accomplished with Play On in November.

Daughtrys self-titled debut album is the fastest selling debut rock album in Soundscan history. During Season 8s rock week, the band gave Idol viewers a first listen to No Surprise, their first single off Leave This Town. After their performance, they were presented with a framed record commemorating 5 million Daughtry records sold. View photos from the show, here.

The band recently returned from touring with Nickelback in Europe. This March, Daughtry will hit up the east coast on another leg of their Leave This Town tour.

Congratulations, Daughtry!
