Featured in the movie Angel Eyes, "Good Morning Beautiful" was initially released as a cut from the movie's soundtrack. Following the song's chart success, "Good Morning Beautiful" was added to later presses of Holy's debut album Blue Moon.[2]

Chart performanceEdit

"Good Morning Beautiful" debuted at number 53 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the chart week of July 28, 2001. The song topped Billboards Hot Country Songs chart for five consecutive weeks, beginning the week of February 2, 2002, spending a total of 41 weeks on the chart. For more than four years, it represented the only No. 1 hit for Holy, whose other songs had failed to peak any higher than No. 24 on the Country chart. That distinction ended when Holy released "Brand New Girlfriend" in 2006, which became his second No. 1 single.[1]
