Three singles charted from the album: a cover of Brenda Lee's 1965 single "Too Many Rivers",[1] followed by the title track and "Lyin' in His Arms Again". Of these, "You Again" achieved the number one position on Hot Country Songs in 1987, while the other two both peaked at number five on the same.[2]
