Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone” was definitely a chart-topper in the ’70s. To note, it clinched in the no. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. However, it did not sell well on the pop market as it only placed at no. 70 on the Billboard Hot 100. Nonetheless, Canadian country music fans received the song very well. In fact, “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone” coveted the top spot on Canadian RPM Country Tracks in the same year.

In one of his interviews, Pride revealed that his manager, Jack D. Johnson, received a demo tape of the song. He listened to it and then re-wrote the song, altering and revising some of the chords, lyrics, and arrangement to better fit the sound of Charley Pride, his client. Later, Pride recorded the revised song and made it his third number-one single. However, with all the work he has done, Johnson did not take the songwriter’s credit. He said that working for the success of his client is much more important than taking the credit.
