[Daily article] March 6: 3 of Hearts (album)

3 of Hearts is the self-titled debut studio album by the American group
3 of Hearts, released on March 6, 2001, through the record label RCA
Nashville. It is a teen pop and country music album, though according to
some music critics, it leans more towards pop music. The album was
managed by American producer Byron Gallimore; its marketing focused on
the group’s crossover appeal to teenagers and young adults. 3 of Hearts
performed on a national tour sponsored by Seventeen magazine and another
sponsored by Walmart, and the singers were featured in several marketing
campaigns. Reviews of the album were mixed; some critics praised the
group’s vocals and public image, but others criticized the songs as
generic and lacking an authentic country sound. The album peaked at
number 45 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. “Love Is Enough” and
“Arizona Rain” were released as singles and made appearances on the
Country Airplay Billboard chart. The album’s low sales and lack of
appeal to country radio audiences led RCA to drop the group.
