Aside from that single, McGraw released chart-topping songs “Everywhere,” “Just to See You Smile,” and “Where the Green Grass Grows,” as well as No. 2 songs “One of These Days” and “For a Little While,” from the album. With two of those singles, McGraw topped the Billboard year-end chart in 1997 and 1998.
The entire project was also a No. 1 hit, topping the U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It also peaked at No. 2 on the all-genre U.S. Billboard 200. In its release year, it earned both gold and platinum certifications from the RIAA. By 2000, the album had gone four-times platinum, meaning McGraw’s fourth album sold in excess of four million units.
