Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, “Yes I Am,” featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a song that brought her second Best Female Rock Grammy. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart.
