Country Love Songs – Part 2
40) No Doubt About It – Neal McCoy
It took a number of singles and even two full length albums before legendary country entertainer Neal McCoy was able to breakthrough with a legitimate hit on the country charts. Most artists (and most labels) give up after so many failures but Neal continued on and in 1994 he struck gold with the number one hit No Doubt About It. The song is a slow romantic ballad where Neal tells the story of a guy that is head over heels in love with the woman of his dreams. The guy knows he and his girl were meant to be together…no doubt about it.
39) I Do – Paul Brandt
Canadian country singer Paul Brandt was just a young kid when he took a few singles to the top five on the country charts back in ’96. His highest charting single was the passionate love song I Do. The song has Brandt confessing his love for a woman and saying he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make their lives everything they’ve ever wanted. Brandt’s smooth voice and the song’s slow melody make it a classic sexy country love song. There is nothing like setting the mood with a good old fashioned country love song.
38) You’re Beginning To Get To Me – Clay Walker
Nothing was more catchy and wonderful than a Clay Walker song in the ’90s. The guy was able to churn out hit after hit during a 15 year or so run that continues still today. In 1998 Walker released a new single from his awesome Greatest Hits collection. The song was You’re Beginning To Get To Me and it became another big hit for Walker. The song is slow and groovy with a sexy feeling to it. The tune is about a guy that realizes he’s falling a more and more in love with the woman he’s with. She’s starting to get to him. He can’t stop thinking about her and he wants to be with her all the time. Is there anything else a woman needs to hear from the man she loves?
37) Buy Me A Rose – Kenny Rogers
Kenny Rogers had a big career comeback in ’99 and ’00 with his #1 country single Buy Me A Rose. The song has a great romantic sound to it. The true meaning of Buy Me A Rose is to find the real reasons you love the person you’re with. Material things are great to have, but those are really worthless without a true love. It’s the little things that matter to women when it comes to romance. Buy your special someone a rose on your way home from work. Do the little things mentioned in this song that make you special in her eyes. Those are the things that show her you care.
36) You’ve Never Been This Far Before – Conway Twitty
When it comes to country romance there is no one more suited to serenade the ladies than Conway Twitty. With his deep voice he is able to hit the notes that make a woman’s thighs shiver. A classic romantic song from Conway was You’ve Never Been This Far Before. The song sees the mature Twitty talking with a lady that he can tell has never been this far before. She’s left another man for the narrator and things are about to take a skip to the next level. It’s a sexy song that really gets you in the mood for some close moments with your lover. There is just something right about turning on some Conway Twitty and going a little far with your lover.
35) Why Don’t You Spend The Night – Ronnie Milsap
There was something about the ’80s in country music that just made things get real sexy. To kick things off in 1980 Ronnie Milsap released the not-so-subtle song Why Don’t You Spend The Night. When things feel right they just feel right and you have to go with it. There is nothing more sexy than having a great evening with someone. There is dinner, conversation, perhaps a walk through the city and then back to your place for some more dessert and chit chat. Things can lead a little further and who knows. Perhaps she’ll spend the night and something can get started.
34) Learning As You Go – Rick Trevino
When guys were young there was nothing more exciting than the thought of being with a woman that is more experienced than themselves. Back in the ’90s Rick Trevino was a rising country star and he released the song Learning As You Go to much fanfare. The song climbed all the way into the upper peaks of the charts and caught on with people all over. The song is about being with someone that has more experience and letting them lead you down the road of love. Sexy and romantic. A great country love song.
33) Cowboy Take Me Away – Dixie Chicks
The Dixie Chicks took a turn toward the romantic with their song Cowboy Take Me Away. The song was written by sister Martie about her sister Emily’s relationship with country singer Charlie Robison. The song is about being swept away by a cowboy while riding off into the sunset. It’s every country girl’s dream and the Chicks brought it to life with the song. It’s romantic and sexy and the idea of falling in love on any given day with the person of your dreams gives life meaning and hope. That’s the stuff romance is made out of.
32) Help Me Hold On – Travis Tritt
A song about a close breakup is something that doesn’t seem to make sense at first. Travis Tritt changed that with his 1990 single Help Me Hold On. The song sees Travis begging his woman to stay with him. He admits he was wrong in whatever made the relationship fall apart but he’s saying he’s willing to continue the partnership as long as she’s willing to help him hold on. Relationships take two people to make it work. Hold your lover tonight and let them know you’re willing to hold on forever.
31) When You Say Nothing At All – Keith Whitley
When You Say Nothing At All has become such an iconic country love song that it’s hard to believe the song actually came from a down day of songwriting by two of Nashville’s best. Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz were having a tough day of little creativity until they crafted the tune. They thought it was alright, but Keith Whitley knew a hit when he heard it. The song would go on to reach the top spot on the country charts for Whitley and the song became cemented as a heartfelt ballad and one of country’s biggest hits. The tune would later be covered by Alison Krauss. Her version would go on to become a major hit as well. The song is about being so much in love with someone that just being in their presence is moving. This is the perfect song to simply turn on, turn to your lover, look into their eyes and simply say nothing at all.
