Billboard Hot Country Songs chart dated September 2, 2006, this album's lead-off single "Once in a Lifetime" debuted at number 17, making it the highest-debuting country single in the 62-year history of the Billboard country music charts at the time. This record was later broken in 2007 by Kenny Chesney's " Don't Blink" (which debuted at number 16 on the same chart), and then again by Garth Brooks' " More Than a Memory" (which debuted at number 1). "Once in a Lifetime" went on to peak at number 6 on the country charts. The other singles released from this album ("Stupid Boy", "I Told You So", and "Everybody ") went to number 3, 2, and 5 respectively, making this the first American album of Urban's career not to produce a Number One hit. "Raise the Barn", a duet with Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn, was written in response to Hurricane Katrina. [2 ]
The song "
I Can't Stop Loving You" is a cover of a Leo Sayer song. " Stupid Boy", was originally recorded by its writer, Sarah Buxton.
