Burton Cummings - Stand Tall On Burton Cummings Album (1976)
"Stand Tall" is the title of an international hit single by Burton Cummings, taken from his eponymous debut album. The recording was issued as the album's lead single in the fall of 1976, spending 21 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and reaching number 10. The song reached number five on the U.S. Cash Box Top 100, and spent four weeks at number four in Canada. The song became a Gold record.

"Stand Tall" was an even big Adult Contemporary hit, reaching number two in the U.S. and spending one week at number one in Canada. It was kept from the number-one position on that chart by the Captain and Tennille's hit, "Muskrat Love."

The song was released less than two years after "Dancin' Fool," the final hit single by the group for which Cummings had been lead singer, The Guess Who.
