Stevenson), the #2 "I Am That Man", the #13 "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up for Nothing" (their first non-Top 10 single), another #1 in "A Man This Lonely", and finally "Why Would I Say Goodbye" at #8. Borderline was certified 2× Platinum by the RIAA.

The song "My Love Will Follow You" was originally recorded by Buddy Miller on his 1995 album Your Love and Other Lies. Borderline was nominated at 39th Grammy Awards for Best Country Album.
