The track “The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA” was not even supposed to be the title of the song.

The song became a hit in both country and pop charts.
This cemented Donna Fargo’s career as a country artist and it spawned to more music from her. The track also earned Fargo a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance back in 1973. The song was also well-loved by her fellow country artists. Tammy Wynette, Tanya Tucker, and Nancy Sinatra did their version of the song. Popstar Lana Del Ray was also fond of the track so she performed it at one of her gigs back in 2009.
