* While most of these albums and several others not on this list have continued to be in almost constant release since their original certifications, it is very likely that several gold albums have passed the platinum mark and several other albums not shown here have passed the gold mark. However, RCA Records has chosen not to pay the fees to have any of Dolly's solo certifications updated for more than 15 years and Once Upon A Christmas for more than 10 years.
Platinum Single (more than 2,000,000 copies sold - technically should be double-platinum under current rules**)
"Islands In The Stream" with Kenny Rogers (certified gold 10/18/83, platinum 12/7/83)
Gold Singles (more than 1,000,000 copies sold - technically should be platinum under current rules**)
"9 to 5" (certified gold 2/19/81)
"Here You Come Again" (certified gold 2/1/78)
Digital Gold Single (more than 500,000 copies legally purchased and downloaded***)
"When I Get Where I'm Going" with Brad Paisley (certified gold 6/15/06)
Gold Longform Video (more than 50,000 copies shipped)
An Evening With . . . Dolly (certified gold 5/11/12)
** In 1989, the RIAA, which documents U.S. music sales, lowered the gold and platinum levels for singles to 500,000 and 1 million, respectively, due to decreases in singles sales. Although the change was made retroactively so that all previous gold albums should be called platinum or higher and many earlier releases which sold more than 500,000 copies should now be called gold, RCA Records has chosen not to pay the fees to have any of the three above singles upgraded to their proper levels, as both "9 to 5" and "Here You Come Again" should be certified platinum and "Islands In The Stream" double platinum. The label also has chosen not to pay the fees to have any of her other singles certified gold which sold more than the current level of 500,000 copies but fewer than the former level of 1 million, which is likely at least four or five other songs.
*** Prior to the end of June 2006, gold digital singles were 100,000 purchases, platinum were 200,000, double-platinum 400,000, etc. Under this system, "Going" was certified both gold and platinum on June 15, 2006. Due to the growing popularity of digital single sales online, the RIAA by month's end changed the minimums at that time to the same as regular hard copy singles: 500,000 for gold and 1 million for platinum, and it was made retroactive. However, all singles previously registered at the gold (100,000), platinum (200,000), and double-platinum (400,000) levels were automatically granted gold status, while only those selling more than 1 million downloads were given platinum status. Thus, "Going" had its platinum status revoked, although it was given the gold certification under this exception even though it had sold about half as many downloads as the new gold level required.
