But though this heartfelt single may catapult Drive to the top of the charts, the album likely would have made it there anyway. Jackson, one of the industry's most talented songwriters, wrote or co-wrote 9 of the disc's 12 songs. The title tune, "Drive (For Daddy Gene)," celebrates the love between a boy and his father, and a man and his children. "Work in Progress" is a fun-filled plea for patience with a man and his faults. A duo with George Strait, "Designated Drinker" is a tongue-in-cheek look at drinking away memories. Toss in a healthy dose of love songs, like "Once in a Lifetime Love" and "When Loves Come Around," and you have an album that's pure Jackson -- and subsequently, a definite hit.
