Although followup ''Fairweather Johnson'' was also a decent enough seller, it produced only one big hit. Following ''Musical Chairs'', the band went on hiatus (with both Bryan and Rucker releasing solo albums), and then came back with ''Scattered, Smothered and Covered'', a compilation which produced no singles. The band left Atlantic Records after a self-titled album in 2003, but came back in 2005 with ''Looking for Lucky'' on Vanguard Records.
