The album is another one of Rogers' that heads in the adult-contemporary direction, but actually performs better than his other recent albums. After #17, #18 and #16 efforts, Kenny finally re-enters the top ten (at #10) with this effort.
Like the studio album before it, Something Inside So Strong was home to a large number of singles. "When You Put Your Heart in It" came out in advance of the album in 1988, and charted #26 on the US Country charts. Other singles include "Planet Texas" (#30 in the US, #11 in Canada), "The Vows Go Unbroken" (#8: US, #26: Canada), the title cut (#26 on Adult Contemporary) and "Maybe", a duet with Holly Dunn (#25: US #17: Canada).
