This was the duo's first album together. This was after Rogers entered the country market a couple of years back with his massive country/pop crossover hit "Lucille" in spring of 1977, followed by a string of more big crossover hits. West, on the other hand, was struggling to keep afloat as a country singer, and needed help to bring her career back to where she was in the early part of the decade. Together, they recorded and released this album in 1978, and it sold very well, bringing good to both artists and was quickly certified gold by the RIAA. The album spawned two big country hits: the title track went to #1 (see the "Every Time Two Fools Collide" song article), followed up by the #2 hit "Anyone Who Isn't Me Tonight". The album went to #1 on the Top Country albums chart for two weeks, and went to #186 on the Billboard 200. It has sold over one million copies world-wide.
This album made the duo one of the biggest duet acts ever to become famous in country music. It was so successful that they issued another album of duets one year later.
