Ok, I believe I have a twofer…or a "take your pick"er…or somethin’…
Baby Girl and Something More by Sugarland. These are the first two singles released off of their debut album, Twice The Speed Of Life. I honestly can’t remember if Baby Girl made it to #1 or not, but I know it made it at least to #2.
Aside from Baby Girl being the longest running country single in Billboard’s chart history, and aside from both singles having been on the charts at the same time, these are both the first country hit singles co-performed and co-written by an “out” lesbian performer, Kristen Hall.
K.D. Lang hit the top 40 with Constant Craving, but not on the country charts.
Something More also climbed to the #3 spot this week, so I look forward to many other firsts and “one and only” 's from this great group.
