Remember Eddie Rabbitt’s ‘On Second Thought?’

Universal Music

Country legend Eddie Rabbitt was one of those lucky artists who had no trouble getting airplay in multiple formats.

Thanks to ‘I Love A Rainy Night’ ‘Drivin’ My Life Away’ ‘Step By Step’ ‘Suspicions’ and the duet with Crystal Gayle ‘You and I,’ Rabbitt’s music was a staple at Adult Contemporary Easy Listening radio stations, as well as a dominating force on Country Radio in the late ’70s and early ’80s. In addition to the crossover hits listed above, he also delivered solid traditional country hits like ‘Drinkin’ My Baby (Off My Mind)’ ‘Two Dollars In The Jukebox’ and ‘Rocky Mountain Music.’

In 1989, near the end of his chart success, Eddie Rabbitt drove his final No. 1 single up the charts. Taking on an ‘old-country’ feel, complete with twin fiddles and a classic shuffle beat, Rabbitt’s self-penned ‘On Second Thought’ two-stepped it’s way to the top. Ironically, for a musician who had so much success in all formats, he ended his commercial run with a traditional country tune reminiscent of Ray Price playing the Grand Ole Opry.

Rabbitt passed at the young age of 56 in 1998, after a battle with cancer.
