Country music superstar Miranda Lambert, who lives in Tishomingo, has earned a platinum hit with her emotional ballad “Over You.” Earlier this week, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the single platinum for selling 1 million downloads.

The chart-topping hit, which Lambert co-wrote with husband Blake Shelton, last week earned the Country Music Association’s song of the year honors at the 46th Annual CMA Awards.

The couple penned “Over You,” the second single off Lambert’s 2011 album “Four the Record,” in honor of Shelton’s brother Richie, who died in a car accident 22 years ago.

Lambert wept openly on stage at the CMA Awards as her husband related how his father, Dick, who died earlier this year, urged the couple to pen “Over You.”

“My dad always told me, `Son, you should write a song about your brother,”‘ Shelton said in the accepting the CMA songwriting trophy. “I lost my dad in January, and it’s so amazing to me that tonight, even after he’s gone, he’s still right. I just needed the right person to write this song with and the right person to sing it.”

Although three married couples had been previously nominated for CMA song of the year – Ed and Patsy Bruce for “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” in 1978, Sanger D. “Whitey” Shafer nd Darlene Shafer for “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” in 1985, and “All My Ex’s Live in Texas,” written by Whitey Shafer and his fourth wife Lydia Shafer in 1987 – Lambert and Shelton are the first to win the honor.
