"Nobody's Home" is the title of a song written and recorded by American country music artist Clint Black. It was released in October 1989 as the third single as well as his third consecutive number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.[1]

Content

The song is a ballad about a man who becomes depressed and miserable after his ex-lover left him. Since the breakup he has lived his life like a zombie, he has the same routine in his life but he is not mentally the same. The narrator is speaking to his ex-lover, telling her that he still drives his pickup truck, combs his hair the same way, and uses the same cologne, but everyone around him tells him that he isn't the same guy that he used to be.

Chart performance

"Nobody's Home" spent three consecutive weeks at the top of the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart beginning on the week of January 20, 1990. The song went on to be named the No. 1 song of 1990 in Billboard magazine's year-end issue.
