20 Years Ago: Trisha Yearwood Hits No. 1 With ‘XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl)’

Trisha Yearwood Thinkin' About You
MCA

Trisha Yearwood may not remember what she was doing 20 years ago today (Sept. 10, 1994), but she was undoubtedly celebrating somewhere, since it was the day her single ‘XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl)’ landed at the top of the charts.

The song, which was her second No. 1 hit (her debut single, ‘She’s In Love With the Boy,’ was the first), is from her fourth studio album, ‘Thinkin’ About You.’ Matraca Berg and Alice Randall co-wrote the track, as well as Yearwood’s earlier single, ‘Wrong Side of Memphis.’

The singer performed ‘XXX’s and OOO’s’ during the 1994 CMA Awards, when she was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. (Pam Tillis took home that year’s honors.)

The track, which did not earn favorable reviews when it was first released, stayed in the No. 1 spot for a total of two weeks.

Yearwood went on to score a total of five No. 1 hits. Her most recent single that reached the top of the charts was ‘Perfect Love,’ in 1998.
