"Good Morning Beautiful" is a song written by Zack Lyle and Todd Cerney, and recorded by American country music artist Steve Holy. It was released in July 2001 as the fourth single from the album Blue Moon. The song slowly became a major hit, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart on February 2, 2002. The song's five-week reign atop the chart was part of a 41-week chart run.[1]

Featured in the movie Angel Eyes, "Good Morning Beautiful" was initially released as a cut from the movie's soundtrack. Following the song's chart success, "Good Morning Beautiful" was added to later presses of Holy's debut album Blue Moon.[2]

Content[edit]

The narrator talks to his lover in the morning and says "Good morning, beautiful" and asks how her night was. He then states that he had a good night because she was with him, and says that since he is awake it's a "good morning beautiful day".

Chart performance[edit]

"Good Morning Beautiful" debuted at number 53 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the chart week of July 28, 2001. The song topped Billboards Hot Country Songs chart for five consecutive weeks, beginning the week of February 2, 2002, spending a total of 41 weeks on the chart. For more than four years, it represented the only No. 1 hit for Holy, whose other songs had failed to peak any higher than No. 24 on the Country chart. That distinction ended when Holy released "Brand New Girlfriend" in 2006, which became his second No. 1 single.[1]
