On That Date
Brooks & Dunn
"Only In America"
Dave Matthews Band
"The Space Between"
On the charts in the weeks before and after 9/11/01, these two songs may have been interrupted on the radio when the horrific news of the terrorist attacks broke.
"Only In America" proclaimed the boundless possibilities available for its citizens. The Brooks & Dunn single went to #1 on the "Hot Country Singles" chart on 10/27/01, and peaked at #33 on the "Hot 100" on 10/13/01.
A lament about conflict, "The Space Between" by Dave Matthews Band was descending from its peak of #22 on the "Hot 100," having reached #4 on the Adult Top 40 charts and #10 on the Modern Rock chart.
