Though The Wreckers only produced one album, , the album went gold and produced three top 40 country hits (one of which went #1 on the country charts and reached the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100), in addition to the hit single with Santana .
Even though the shift from pop/adult contemporary to country seemed like a big shock for Michelle Branch’s music label, Maverick, it proved not to be a problem for her fans at all, as she continued her success on the charts.
Michelle Branch won a Grammy Award and got a top 10 hit for her collaboration “The Game of Love” with Santana, of of his album .
Meanwhile, Vanessa Carlton scored a hit singing backup on the Counting Crows re-make of the Joni Mitchell classic “Big Yellow Taxi,” which just missed the top 40.
In fact, I share at least two of his agendas, which makes them worthwhile to discuss.
The first agenda is indicated by the very title and content of the material, which consisted of parallel accounts of a Greek and a Roman.

Michelle Branch’s change of direction and fresh start as a country singer with The Wreckers was successful.
Her own less platonic duo with Stephen Jenkins of the San Francisco-based rock band Third Eye Blind informed a grittier and darker sophomore album named that was released in 2004.
The album flopped, failing to go gold despite positive reviews and only producing the minor single “White Houses,” which was in my opinion by far the best song on the whole album (I was one of the people who purchased the album myself, and I was somewhat disappointed).
She got frustrated with metaphorically having to perform fellatio to have her songs played on the radio  and decided to form a country duo with a friend of hers named Jessica Harp called The Wreckers, though she (having had a couple of successful albums) was able to keep her record deal while doing so.
Vanessa Carlton was not so fortunate after her own sophomore album experience.
