The album has sold thousands of copies in its first week of release. This album was composed of 11 songs, and 3 of those became a country hit. The three country hit singles were “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “All Over Me,” and “I Wouldn’t Be A Man.”

About the Song

The words put in the song “I Wouldn’t Be A Man” show how a man devotes himself to his lover. It also portrays that he wouldn’t be the man he is now without his lover. Thus, the love has turned his life into a better one.

Remember that falling in love with someone has its good and bad side. The good side is when we fall in love, we get to know the person for who he is, and have a chance to show him/her what the true meaning of love is. The bad side of it is when we get comfortable with the person, we tend to ignore his/her feelings for some reason.
