One of my favorite things about country music is all of the emotion behind almost every song you hear. It is difficult to listen to a song and not feel what the artist is singing about, which can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster at times. There is a country song for every emotion, and possibly every situation, that you could even imagine. I personally enjoy the happier tunes and what makes a person happier than a heart full of love for someone or something?! So, I have put together a short playlist of effective love songs that I believe can make a person feel ‘in love’ even if they do not have a significant other. If you are not feeling the love and thinking about a person after listening to these songs, I am willing to bet that you at least fall in love with the way each artist feels about their lovers.
- “Good Morning Beautiful” (2001) – Steve Holy
In this chart topping song, the narrator sings about how ever since his significant other came into his life, his days have brightened up. It is easy to see all of the love he has for his lover and would waking up and hearing this not be the sweetest thing ever? However, I am not the biggest fan of the music video.
- “She’s Everything” (2006) – Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley has a few really great love songs, but this one stands out the most to me. I think it is easily applicable to anyone’s relationship because he hits many different yet broad characteristics of the woman the song is for. My favorite line in the song is, “She’s a picture in my wallet and my unborn children’s mother.” What a special thing to say.
3. “A Woman Like You” (2011)– Lee Brice
Lee Brice really nailed it with this song. He managed to create a darn cute love story while keeping his masculinity, which makes it an enjoyable song for both partners in a relationship. This is arguably my favorite love song on this playlist because it isn’t super sappy like the other ones.
4. “I Cross My Heart” (1992) – George Strait
Strait sings about his “unconditional” love for his partner in this single. The song’s simplicity along with Strait’s dreamy voice makes it such a charming song. The song was written for the movie Pure Country, in which Strait was actually starred in. Plus, what would a playlist be without “the king of country music?”
5. “Deeper Than The Holler” (1988) – Randy Travis
This song has been one of my favorites ever since I was little. I love Travis’s voice and mix it with a song talking about how true his love is, well, I think it would be hard for anyone to not like it. I think of my dog, Delilah, when I hear “Deeper Than The Holler.” It is also very catchy and will have you singing it in your head all day long!
Let me know what you think!
