"Nobody" also reached #13 as a crossover hit on Billboard's Top 100 chart and spent a total of 52 weeks on both charts. Recording for RCA until the end of 1987, Sylvia recorded six albums and garnered a total of 13 Top Ten and No. 1 songs, selling over 4 million records. In 1982, Sylvia was named "Female Vocalist of the Year" by the Academy of Country Music and was a Grammy nominee in the "Best Female Country Vocal Performance" category in 1983.
