In late 1994, superstar Reba McEntire recorded a song that Kim and Bill collaborated on which became a top five hit single entitled, "They Asked About You." That song was included in McEntire's Greatest Hits Vol. II, an album that went to #1 and has currently sold over six million copies. Their latest hit is "In God We Still Trust", which was not only a #1 independent record for Nash3, but was recorded by country supergroup, Diamond Rio, on Arista Nashville Records.
