"That's a Plan"

"Mrs. Steven Rudy" is a song written by Shane Decker and co-written and recorded by Mark McGuinn for his 2001 debut self-titled album. It was released as the album's first single in January 2001 and peaked at number 6 on the U.S. country charts. It also reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was his highest peaking single and his only top 20 single on the country charts. It was also McGuinn's only peaking single on the Hot 100. The song was the highest-selling single on the country singles sales charts for five consecutive weeks in mid-2001. The song marked the first time in over 40 years a new artist, on an independent label, had obtained at top 10 hit.

Initially, McGuinn's debut single was to have been "That's a Plan," but after a disc jockey at KPLX in Texas began playing "Mrs. Steven Rudy," that song became his debut single instead.[1]
