|Sylvia singles chronology|
The song was first recorded in 1982 by Sylvia, who was already a Country Music star the previous year, achieving a #1 hit and 2 other Top Tens in 1981. "Nobody" was her second and final #1 Country hit. The song was so successful, it crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 charts, debuting on August 28, 1982 (the week the song dropped from #1 Country) and peaking at number fifteen. "Nobody" spent 20 weeks on the chart; earned a gold record; and was a Top Five Adult Contemporary hit.
The song turned young Sylvia into a star on both sides of the charts. Although she gained Country Pop success with "Nobody", she never achieved another crossover hit, or for that matter, another #1 hit. The song became Sylvia's signature song and got her nominated her for a Grammy award in 1983 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. It also helped her take home the Academy of Country Music (ACM) award for Top Female Vocalist of 1982, a category for which she was never even nominated by the Country Music Association (CMA).
