Here we present the list of top 10 best Country Love songs of all time 2017.
#10. “Carrying Your Love With Me” – George Strait – Carrying Your Love With Me (1997)
There is something to be said about an artist who can make a list like this twice, but that is precisely what Country music superstar George Strait was able to do. Both of the tracks featured on this list would be number one hits for the artist, who has seen his fair share of number 1 singles throughout his career. “Carrying Your Love With Me” is a song about loving someone even when you aren’t always able to be at home with them. For those that long haul truck or for those that have to travel a lot for their work, “Carrying Your Love With Me” is a reminder that no matter where you go or how far away you are, that you just have to keep your love strong by keeping it alive in your heart.
#9. “Strawberry Wine” – Deana Carter – Did I Shave My Legs For This? (1995)
The quintessential track about young love is precisely what Deanna Carter brought to the top of the charts in 1995 with “Strawberry Wine”. The song details the love that a 17 year old girl had for a kid that was home from college and working for money on her grandfather’s farm. The two became infatuated with each other and what resulted was the singer’s first real experience with love, even though it was premature and came and went too soon, but it is an experience that she will remember and cherish for all of her days.
#8. “Amazed” – Lonestar – Lonely Grill (1999)
Lonestar became an even bigger act after their mega hit “Amazed” dropped in 1999. While the group had already seen its fair share of spotlight, this would be the song that would define the band throughout their entire careers. This touching track is written from the singer to the love of his life, and goes into great detail about how much she means to him and how each and every day she manages to amaze him. More than even this, he recounts to his love that every single day that passes is a day that his life is getting even better, and that there is no other place he’d want to spend the rest of his days than by her side forever.
#7. “Don’t Take The Girl” – Tim McGraw – Not A Moment Too Soon (1994)
Tim McGraw is no stranger to touching songs about deep love, as he has a deep love with his Country superstar wife Faith Hill. That being said, one of the greatest Country love songs that was ever written came from an early McGraw album called Not A Moment Too Soon. “Don’t Take The Girl” follows the story of Johnny who throughout the song finds that he is in love with a particular girl. Through a series of unfortunate events, he has several instances where he could lose her. The chorus is a plea to any and all of these circumstances to do whatever else you need to do, just don’t take her please.
#6. “She’s In Love With The Boy” – Trisha Yearwood – Trisha Yearwood (1991)
Trisha Yearwood has performed quite a few loving tracks throughout her career in the Country genre. None quite saw as much success as her song accounting the love of two young people on her debut self-titled album. “She’s In Love With The Boy” was a story of the love between Katie and Tommy, and how deep and pure that the love actually is. Much to the dismay of Katie’s father she hopes to marry Tommy one day. Her dad ultimately needs to be reminded by Katie’s mother that at one time her father didn’t think he was “worth a lick” either, so just let the two be.
#5. “If Tomorrow Never Comes” – Garth Brooks – Garth Brooks (1989)
It is fitting for Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood to be sitting so closely to one another on the list about Country love songs, as the two of them have been happily married for many years. One of Garth’s most well constructed love songs in his career would also come from his own debut self-titled album. “If Tomorrow Never Comes” is a song about trying to do everything that the singer is able to do to show the one that he loves just how deeply he cares. There could be a morning where he doesn’t wake up, and if that ever were to happen, she needs to always have known just how much she was always loved.
#4. “Bless The Broken Road” – Rascal Flatts – Feels Like Today (2000)
Quickly becoming one of the biggest wedding songs ever after 2000, “Bless The Broken Road” is a story about how things aren’t always a bed of roses on your way to finding true love. That road is often riddled with heartbreak and pain, but that every single thing that goes wrong along the way is a new marker leading you on the path to who you are destined to meet and spend the rest of your life with. Rascal Flatts would see some of their biggest success come from the release of this track, even though the band would have numerous hit singles throughout their former and current career.
#3. “I’ll Wait For You” – Joe Nichols – III (2005)
Joe Nichol’s performs a song in “I’ll Wait For You” that almost could be anyone’s story who has to spend time away from their loved ones. In this particular song the singer is having conversations with his wife (who we later learn to be sick in the hospital and dying), recounting some of the times that she has had to wait for him to be able to get home before they could do something like opening up presents on Christmas or having the first child that the two would create. The song culminates with her having left him a note when he can eventually make it to the hospital telling him that she is going to be waiting for him at the gates of Heaven, no matter how long that it takes.
#2. “Love, Me” – Collin Raye – All I Can Be (1991)
Following very closely in that everlasting love vein that made “I’ll Wait For You” such a modern classic, “Love, Me” would be the 1990s equivalent of that song. Collin Raye had already seen some big singles being released and a nice rise in his popularity. “Love, Me” would be one of the most iconic songs that the artist would ever perform, second only to his song “Little Rock”. The songs chorus is a note that the woman wrote to her husband, the singer’s grandfather.
#1. “I Cross My Heart” – George Strait – Pure Country Original Soundtrack (1992)
While George Strait likely knew that he had a hit song on his hands when he heard “I Cross My Heart” for the first time, it was unlikely that he would have predicted its enormous success throughout the years. This is the single greatest Country love song that has ever been written, and amazingly enough from an artist that already has a song that is #10 on this list. George Strait sings through the track, in a very wedding style delivery, all of the things that he promises to do for his love. The iconic chorus is primarily the reason for its placement: “I cross my heart and promise to give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true. In all the world, you’ll never find a love as true as mine.”
Theses are the very best of the best when it comes to romance written through the Country genre. While there are certainly several honorable mentions that could be filling up this concluding paragraph, even those would be debated in the comments. So these songs are time tested and highly rated, they all still receive regular rotations on radio stations all around the world, and they are all great representations of true and deep love.
