No. 1 hits record
On the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, "Here Comes Honey Again" established James as the new record holder for most No. 1 songs in as many single releases with 16, surpassing Buck Owens (his labelmate at Capitol Records) who had 15 consecutive No. 1 songs without a miss from 1963-1967. James' streak had started in 1967 with "Need You," and save for non-charting Christmas singles released between 1967-1970, every one of his songs went to No. 1. The next single release, "Only Love Can Break a Heart," peaked at No. 2 – held out by Freddie Hart's "My Hang-Up Is You," breaking the streak. James held the new record of 16 in a row without a miss until August 1985, when Alabama scored their 17th-straight No. 1 song in as many non-holiday single releases with "40 Hour Week (For a Livin')."
