The track was Webb Pierce’s most commercially successful pop single, crossing over to the adult contemporary genre and reaching a peak of number 22. The C&W Best Seller rankings’ eighth-highest position was reached by the B-side of “More and More,” “You’re Not Mine Anymore.” The 2006 movie The Hills Have Eyes played the song during the opening credits.
Getting over a breakup is the subject of the story “More and More.” It is difficult if the person you love abandoned you or if things did not work out between you two. However, only time can make yesterday’s pain go away. Similar to Pierce’s song, you must go through all the stages of getting over someone before the wounds may start to heal more completely day by day.
