When it comes to tight group harmony and energetic ensemble instrumental work, Diamond Rio are pretty much state of the art as contemporary country goes, and One More Day continues the sextet's winning streak. The album's 13 songs hail from the pens of some of Nashville's top tunesmiths, and the band's accessible country-pop approach is peppered with pleasant surprises. There's a lovely bluegrass rendition of J. D. Souther's "Hearts Against the Wind," featuring close, heartfelt harmonies and evocative mandolin lines. Bluegrass inflections also spice the tender childhood reminiscences of "Sweet Summer." "I'm Already Gone" starts off like a folk-rock lament for lost love and turns into a soaring ode to new love. Something old, something new -- Diamond Rio have mastered the art of challenging themselves while at the same time refining their distinctive signature sound.

I think that this song really makes me feel better when I feel sad. Anyway, this song is sad and happy at the same time. Sad: Because, the person he misses is gone. The lyrics are too. Happy: The person is remembering the happy times the person had with his friend.
This is by far the best cd that Diamond Rio has done! From the fast paced-tongue twisting lyrics of 'That's Just That' to the harmony filled 'Hearts Against the Wind' and 'Til the Heartache's Gone', this album will keep you listening from beginning to end. 'Sweet Summer' is full of memories from your childhood days. Buy it and I can guarantee you will be back wanting more from the boys of Diamond Rio.
I feel that ''One More Day'' is one of the best songs I have ever heard. It displays emotion, sweetness , and a caring sense about it. I really towards the next big hit.
it kind of hit me where it hurts. for the i've been this situation and when i first heard it, like i sid it really hit home.
Well, I don't know how to start ! These guys ( Diamond Rio) are the best in the business. Music is incredible and the voice is simply superb. Adding to the best lyric of ''One More Day'' song is the emotional touch given to the singing of this song. I would rate this song as the best song I've ever heard till this date. I think this band has such a great coordination and they are so talented, one wouldn't surprised if they come out with more and more suuch classics.
"One More Day" is the best song RIO has come out with. This song should have been on their albums, especially "Platinum" from the time it was produced but they missed the mark. Absolutely a block buster and without a doubt one of the best they've done. Thanks for the memories Diamond RIO.
The song 'One More Day' is one of the most bittersweet songs I've ever heard, but it's one that pulls at your heartstrings. You can't help but love the song. It was played at my grandfather's funeral, so it has an emotional connection with me I think everyone has that one person they would like to have 'one more day with'.
On One More Day, Diamond Rio again demonstrates that they are no doubt the finest musicians in a town full of fine musicians, with a fabulous selection of songs that show off the vocal harmonies and musical talents to the absolute best. There is a reason that this group is still charting songs and putting out great music eleven years after their first single hit this chart. BUY THIS ALBUM and after you do you''ll want to come back in here and buy any Diamond Rio album that you don' already own.
