Amazed

Amazed

[uh-meyzd]
"Amazed" is a country music ballad recorded by Lonestar, released as a single from the band's album Lonely Grill. The song spent eight consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1999 and crossed over to pop radio, climbing to number twenty-four before falling off the Billboard Hot 100.

"Amazed" was remixed for mainstream radio (a tactic commonly used to present country-leaning songs to non-country audiences) and the new mix's popularity prompted a re-entry in the Hot 100. On its second chart run, the track went to number one for two weeks in March of 2000. In doing so, it became the first country song to hit #1 on the Hot 100 since the Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton duet, "Islands In The Stream," in 1983.
