(Radio.com) Country star Garth Brooks made history on September 21st when his 2007 album The Ultimate Hits became his seventh to achieve a diamond certification or 10 million copies sold.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) confirmed that Brooks was the first artist in history to earn seven diamond-certified albums. To put that in perspective, Brooks has achieved more diamond-certified albums than The Beatles.

Besides The Ultimate Hits, Brooks' other albums that achieved diamond status include five studio albums Garth Brooks (1989), No Fences (1990), Ropin' the Wind (1991) and Sevens (1997), and another live album, Double Live (1998).
