Christopher Cross was far and away the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads; seemingly as quickly as he shot to fame, his star descended, he continued recording and touring for years to come.  His self-titled debut LP  with the lead single "Ride Like the Wind" rocketing to the number two spot; the massive success of the second single, "Sailing," made him a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, "Never Be the Same" and "Say You'll Be Mine," he walked off with a record-setting five Grammys in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for "Sailing."
