"One More Day" is a song written by Bobby Tomberlin and Steven Dale Jones, and recorded by American country music group Diamond Rio. It was released in October 2000 as the second single from their 2001 album, also titled One More Day, in addition to gaining popularity after the death of NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart. It also peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it a minor crossover hit. After falling from the charts, it received heavy recurrent rotation as a tribute to the people who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The narrator has a dream that a wish was granted to him. He talks about how he didn't wish for any extravagant gift like a "mansion in Malibu", he wished for one more day with his lover.

Reception

Keyboardist Dan Truman recalled the beginning of the songs popularity, “It all started in Los Angeles, when RCA Nashville chairman Joe Galante played six of our new songs for some RCA people who were from outside country music. When he came home, he told us he was just astounded, because after he played ‘One More Day’ everybody stood up and applauded. That’s why it was chosen for a single. And then, there it went.[1]

Music video

The music video was directed by Deaton Flanigen and features Diamond Rio performing in and outside of a mansion. It also shows a model swimming in the mansions swimming pool. The video is in black and white. The video premiered on September 28, 2000.
