The first hit single for Sugar Ray came in 1997 when ‘Fly’ became a No. 1 hit in the U.S. and Canada. The group has released six studio albums, and is known for additional hit songs like ‘Every Morning,’ ‘Someday’ and ‘When It’s Over.’
Smash Mouth is a California band originally formed in the mid-90s. ‘Walkin’ on the Sun,’ ‘All Star,’ ‘Can’t Get Enough of You Baby,’ ‘Then The Morning Comes’ and their cover of ‘I’m a Believer” for the movie ‘Shrek’ were all successes for the band.
Blues Traveler released four albums before finding mainstream success with the Grammy-winning hit ‘Run Around.’ Their follow-up single, ‘Hook,’ was also a Top 20 hit.
Uncle Kracker’s first album was a Top 10 success in 2000, and his music has found success on the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary, Adult Pop, Mainstream Top 40 and Hot Country Songs charts. His debut hit, ‘Follow Me,’ reached No. 1 in four countries.
