Other hit singles such as “You Lie” achieved platinum sales and “All Your Life” was also number 1 on Country Charts. In 2013, the release of their sophomore album “Pioneer” displayed more of a fiery rock-n-roll element fused with the band’s country roots. This album was a tribute to their southern roots and produced hit singles such as “Pioneer,” “Mother Like Me,” and “Better Dig Two,” which stayed at number 1 for two weeks on the country charts.
