Walking the Wire is an album released by American country music singer Dan Seals. It was his first for the Warner Brothers label (ironically, the same label his older brother, Jim Seals, was once signed with as one half of Seals & Crofts). This album was a commercial failure. Three of its five singles charted, which were "Sweet Little Shoe" (peaked at number 62), "Mason Dixon Line" (peaked at number 43), and "When Love Comes Around the Bend" (peaked at number 51).[3] The B-side to "Mason Dixon Line", titled "Be My Angel", was later a non-album single for Lionel Cartwright, peaking at number 63 in late 1992.[4] The other two singles, "We Are One" and the non-album single "Good Goodbye" failed to chart. After this album, Dan Seals became a touring artist for the remainder of the 1990s. This album is currently out of print.
