The smash topped Hot Country Songs on April 9, 1983.
Rocker Bob Seger wrote the ballad and his original reached No. 13 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 in 1979. Rogers and Easton's take did even better on the Hot 100, hitting No. 6.
Their cover of "Tonight" also peaked at No. 2 for five weeks on the Adult Contemporary chart. (Rogers couldn't have been too upset about missing No. 1: It was blocked by "You Are," by Lionel Richie, who penned Rogers' smash "Lady," which led AC, Hot Country Songs and the Hot 100 in 1980.)
