During the summer of 2003, the reality show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, starring Simpson and her then-new husband Nick Lachey began airing on MTV. Simpson’s third album, In This Skin, was released in August 2003 to coincide with the series premiere of Newlyweds.  The show quickly became a pop culture phenomenon and is credited with making her a household name, even among those who did not follow pop music or MTV. “I never knew that just doing the show would give me that pedestal to step on,” Simpson told Blender magazine in a March 2004 feature.

In 2005, Newlyweds won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show before wrapping shortly after.  In November 2005, after months of tabloid speculation, Simpson and Lachey announced they were separating.  They were officially divorced in June of 2006.

Jessica’s country album, entitled Do You Know, was released on September 9th of this year.  The album debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in both the US and Canada giving Simpson her first #1 album of her career. The albums second single "Remember that" was released to country radio on September 29th.

Rascal Flatts is an American Grammy Award-winning Country Music group founded in Nashville, Tennessee.  Since its inception, Rascal Flatts has been composed of three members: Gary LeVox (lead vocals), Jay DeMarcus (bass guitar, keyboards, vocals), and Joe Don Rooney (lead guitar, vocals).  They have also released twenty-two singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including eight Number Ones. A cover of Tom Cochrane’s "Life Is a Highway", from the soundtrack to the 2006 film Cars, also entered the country music charts from unsolicited airplay. Their longest-lasting Number One is "Bless the Broken Road" (late 2004-early 2005) at five weeks, while their most successful crossover single is "What Hurts the Most", which topped both the country and Adult Contemporary charts in 2006, and was a Top Ten pop hit.  They released their first Greatest Hits CD, Greatest Hits Volume 1 on October 28th.
