Song information[edit]

The two songs that Williams covers on the album that had already been chart hits for other artists both went to number one on the Country chart in 1989. One of them, "If I Had You" by Alabama, was, in fact, knocked out of the number one spot by the other, Rodney Crowell's "After All This Time", in May of that year.[4] Two other songs here have been covered by other artists. "If I Had Only Known" was also recorded by Reba McEntire in 1991 for her album For My Broken Heart,[5] and "Still Under the Weather" was later recorded by Shania Twain for her self-titled debut album.[6]
