One More Day is the sixth studio album produced by American country band Diamond Rio. The album was released in 2001. Although its lead-off single "Stuff" peaked at #36 on the Hot Country Songs charts, the title track became popular on radio after the death of Dale Earnhardt, Sr., and eventually went on to become a Number One country hit. Also released from this album were "Sweet Summer" and "That's Just That". "I'm Trying" was previously recorded by Kevin Sharp on his 1998 album Love Is, and later by Martina McBride on her 2009 album Shine.
One More Day was recorded in 18 months. The band discussed their take of the album on Arista's website in 2000. "We feel like we've got the best group of songs that we've ever had on record," says Dana Williams. "Every time we do a record, we feel that way - if you don't, then there's something wrong." The group made a conscious effort to conquer new musical territory with this project. "Part of what we set out to do on this record was to do something that we hadn't done before, and try to approach things in a different manner," says Gene Johnson. "Dana and I approached the harmony vocals differently. In fact, we did a lot of harmony vocals on this album; there's not a whole lot of Marty by himself." Gene continues, "We have unique instrumentation, and we're all distinctive players. So one of the things we didn't want to do was get too much light material. We wanted it to be pretty serious." The album's intended title was to be "Stuff" after the lead-off single's title. The commercial failure of that single caused the title and original tracklisting of the album to be changed.
