After the Tony Rich Project's hit pop version, "Nobody Knows" became Sharp's sole No. 1.
On Jan. 11, 1997, Kevin Sharp began a four-week reign on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart with "Nobody Knows." Sharp's country version of the ballad had become a No. 2 Billboard Hot 100 pop/R&B hit a year earlier for The Tony Rich Project.
Sharp went on to collect two additional top 10 songs: "She's Sure Taking It Well" (No. 3) and "If You Love Somebody" (No. 4), both also in 1997. All three were released from his debut LP, Measure of a Man, which peaked at No. 4 on Top Country Albums and has sold 762,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to Nielsen Music.
