"One More Day""written by Bobby Tomberlin and Steven Dale Jones, and recorded by American country music group Diamond Rio. It was released in October 2000 as the second single and title track from their album One More Day, in addition to gaining popularity after the death of NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart. It also peaked at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it a minor crossover hit. After falling from the charts, it received heavy recurrent rotation as a tribute to the people who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.Keyboardist Dan Truman recalled the beginning of the songs popularity, “It all started in Los Angeles, when RCA Nashville chairman Joe Galante played six of our new songs for some RCA people who were from outside country music. When he came home, he told us he was just astounded, because after he played ‘One More Day’ everybody stood up and applauded. That’s why it was chosen for a single. And then, there it went.
