This was a huge crossover hit for Seger, climbing to #2 on the Hot 100, where it stayed for four weeks (held off by "Baby, Come To Me
," then "Billie Jean
"). It was also a #1 hit on the Adult Contemporary chart (by far his highest placing) and his only entry on the Country chart, where it went to #15. Rodney Crowell was under the radar at the time, but his 1988 album Diamonds And Dirt
contained five Country chart-toppers.
