Being a native Texas and co-starring in the “Dukes of Hazzard” movie didn’t do much to endear Jessica Simpson to country music fans. The pop singer, reality show star and actress made a bold move into country in 2008, releasing an album of glossy country pop titled “Do You Know.” After a strong start – the album debuted at No. 1 and the lead single peaked at No. 18 – Simpson quickly fell out of favor. The record stalled, selling less than 200,000 copies. She parted ways with her label shortly thereafter.—Jeff Royer
