The album has the distinction of being the album the group was promoting when lead singer Natalie Maines made comments about U.S. President George W. Bush. The album's third single, "Travelin' Soldier", was #1 on the Billboard Country Chart the week that Maines' comments hit the press. The following week, as many stations started a still-standing boycott of the Chicks' music, the song collapsed. None of the following singles gained traction with country radio.
Despite these events, the album was certified 6× Multi-platinum status by the RIAA, having shifted 6 million units. The album also featured a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide", which was their biggest pop crossover hit to date, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two of this album's tracks were previously recorded by other acts: "Travelin' Soldier" by its writer, Bruce Robison, and later by Ty England on 1999's Highways & Dance Halls, and "Landslide" by Radney Foster on 1999's See What You Want to See.
The album was also successful in Australia, in its 175th week in the country charts it was certified Triple Platinum for shipments of 210,000 copies.
The U.S. Deluxe Edition features a bonus track and a DVD containing four videos. The Holland Bonus DVD Edition contains three bonus tracks and a DVD.
