One of the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA's) most certified groups ever, Bob Marley & The Wailers, earned May's top album certification, according to Gold & Platinum's newest monthly tally. "Legend" (Island, 1984) certified 15x multi-Platinum just in time for the iconic album's 30th anniversary and album re-release with added songs!

Georgia bred crooner Brantley Gilbert earned his first Platinum album award for "Halfway To Heaven" (The Valory Music Co., 2011). Gilbert also saddled up to his third Platinum Digital Single Award for current hit "Bottoms Up."
