On the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, the song reached number 5. Moreover, it peaked at number 11 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.
“Even the Man in the Moon Is Cryin’” is in Collie’s third album for MCA Records. Don Cook, his co-writer for the song, produced the album, Mark Collie. The album accounted for his two highest-charting singles: “Even the Man in the Moon Is Cryin’” (5) and “Born to Love You” (6). After those two songs, “Shame Shame Shame Shame” and “Something’s Gonna Change Her Mind” both made it to the top 30 as well. In one of the accounts, Brian Mansfield wrote:
“At once a move to the mainstream and a return to Collie’s West Tennessee rockabilly roots”.
Written as a heartbreak song, the narrator hypothetically tells what he feels when his lover left him. He wants everyone to know that “Even the Man in the Moon Is Cryin’”.
