Song “All for You,” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with â€œLighter In The Darkâ€ at #4 on Billboardâ€™s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboardâ€™s Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The band landed on Billboardâ€™s Top Country Albums Chart again in 2016 with â€œUnplugged From Daryl’s House Clubâ€ at #75. In February 2018, â€œWater,â€ Volume I of a collectible compilation series titled, â€œElements,â€ hit the Billboard Country Albums chart at #9 and at #2 on Billboardâ€™s Independent Albums chart along with making their debut on the most revered stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry. Volume II of Elements titled â€œWindâ€ debuted at #1 on iTunes in September 2018 and at #11 on Billboard Independent Chart, #16 on Billboard Americana/Folk Chart, and #5 on Billboard’s Country Album Sales chart.
