The Intruders are also noted for having 24 R&B chart hits, including 6 R&B Top Tens, and 14 chart hits in the Billboard Hot 100, including their signature song, the million-selling Top 10 smash, "Cowboys to Girls” Other hits include the Top 10 R&B smashes "(Love Is Like A) Baseball Game", “I’ll Always Love My Mama”, "United", and "I Wanna Know Your Name".

Robert Frye, the voice of the intruders for over 30 years still performs with the group all over the world today.

Also, celebrate 50 years of Latin and R&B Music with The Tierra Legacy band which includes original and longtime members who created their timeless music and a salute to The Intruders. Their biggest hit was the 1980 remake of The Intruders’ 1967 hit “Together” written by Gamble & Huff, which reached No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 9 on the US Billboard chart.
