Hanson think 'MMMBop' wasn't a "shabby way" to start their career.
The Oklahoma-based band - who had a worldwide hit with the pop song in 1997 - admitted they see their debut as a "pretty good first chapter" to their 15 years in the music industry.
Isaac - who is joined in the group by brothers Taylor and Zac - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Every book has a story, every book has a first chapter and for us that's a pretty good first chapter. It was not a shabby way to start things off."
The group explained they feel in a "lucky position" to have written a track so young that continued to be popular over the years.
Isaac added: "I think that we're in a really lucky position that as young as we were, a song like 'MMMBop' was so popular. And I have to say it kept getting bigger over the years.
"Songs and careers they kind of grow in a unique way over time. It's not just about what it was, it's about what it is, what it continues to be."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
