Love is in the air. Most of us have these “butterflies in our stomach” when Valentine’s is just around the corner. We think of hearts, balloons, flowers, and chocolates. What’s more? Who can let the day of hearts pass without hearing love songs – tracks to dance to or songs to hum to.
Here is a list of some country music love songs from various artists.
There’s No Way
“There's No Way” is a song that John Jarrard, Lisa Palas, and Will Robinson composed. Recorded by American country music band Alabama as the first single from the band's album 40-Hour Week. RCA released the track in January 1985.
That’s the Way Love Goes
Merle Haggard released the song in November 1983 as the second and title track from his album That's the Way Love Goes. Haggard's version gave him his 30th number one single which spent 21 weeks on the charts and won him Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance — Male. He with a duet with Jewel charted a second rendition of the song in 1999. It occupied spot #56 on the country charts.
When Somebody Loves You
“When Somebody Loves You” is a song that Alan Jackson penned and recorded. Released in March 2001, it was the second single and title track from the album When Somebody Loves You. It peaked at number 5 on the Hot Country Songs chart.
“Pure Love” is a song by Ronnie Milsap. It was Milsap’s first ever single and part of the Pure Love album. In March 1974, they launched the track. Later in spring of that year, the song was the American country music singer 's first ever chart topper on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Although Ronnie had two previous top 15 hits—1973’s “I Hate You” and “That Girl Who Waits on Tables”—“Pure Love” is largely his career’s greatest breakthrough.
I Will Always Love You
In 1973, the song “I Will Always Love You” was an original by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. Her creation was a single released in 1974. It was a farewell to her one-time partner and mentor of seven years, Porter Wagoner. The decision was for Parton to pursue a solo career.
Ring of Fire
Written by June Carter Cash and Merle Kilgore, “Ring of Fire” is one of Johnny Cash’s most memorable hits. It serves as a reminder of the powerful impact of romantic love.
Forever and Ever, Amen
Randy Travis’ “Forever and Ever, Amen” has stood the test of time as one of country music’s most endearing love songs. As plain spoken and true as only a country song can be, “Forever and Ever, Amen” is one of the greatest country love songs ever written.
Howdy, Y'all! Stay in Love!
