    Nice live version of Hoyt’s 1979 single. Released on his own Jeremiah label the record peaked at #17 in July 1979.

    The song was featured in an episode of the TV series WKRP in Cincinnati. Hoyt played Jennifer’s (Loni Anderson) old friend from West Virginia. That show aired around the time that single was released on April 23, 1979 giving it a nice promotional push. The recorded version is heard near the end of the show and played over the closing credits.
