During the middle 1970's and through the early 80's Dave and Sugar were among the most successful vocal groups in country music.

The group, when it started, consisted of lead singer Dave Rowland, Vicki Hackeman and Jackie Frantz.  The two originals were eventually replaced by various female artists.

Dave and Sugar charted 16 times on the Billboard Country Charts, including there number one hits "The Door is Always Open," "Tear Time" and "Golden Tears."

Dave Rowland, before Dave and Sugar, was a prominent member of country singer Charley Pride's  Road Show.

By 1975, Dave and Sugar was born, the trio's first single was a song first recorded by Dr. Hook in 1972, "Queen of the Silver Dollar."  The song made it into the top 25.

The group was active from 1975 to 1982.
