Country Love Songs – Part 3
30) Big Green Tractor – Jason Aldean
At first blush Big Green Tractor may not seem like a romantic country love song, but as Jason Aldean said himself…
From Song Facts Jason Aldean Big Green Tractor:
“There’s nothin’ more romantic than a tractor. If you live in South Georgia, a Saturday night out on the tractor with your girl is probably not that far-fetched of what could be considered a good ‘date night.’ The song seems to be connecting already, so maybe tractors have always been romantic, and everybody just needed reminding.”
29) The One – Gary Allan
Gary Allan is a country music treasure. While he doesn’t fit the standard country music guy he definitely has his own niche carved out. The raspy voiced singer didn’t really have a place in country when he first got started. It took a few singles before Gary was able to push himself out into the big time in country music. The One was a slow ballad that made the ladies swoon and love what he was saying. The song is about doing everything it takes until your woman knows that you think she’s the one. There is no better person to have sing a song like this than Gary. The passion and emotion come through in every lyric and people felt it and that’s why it’s on this list of country love songs.
28) Lost In This Moment – Big & Rich
Big & Rich were kind of a funky type country duo. Nobody really knew what to think of the guys. They had crazy songs that were in your face and telling you to ride a cowboy instead of a horse. What really made the guys stand out as a for real country band was their number one hit song Lost In This Moment. The song is about getting lost with the one you love. Nothing else matters in the world at this moment but the one person you’re with. If you’ve ever felt this way about someone you know what it’s like to be in love. Those moments are special and Big & Rich was able to capture the feeling in a great country love song.
27) Lady – Kenny Rogers
Man Kenny Rogers has had some big hits over the last 40+ years. The guy is unstoppable in country music. He knows a great melody when he hears a demo tape and he has the crazy ability to turn a song about love into something special. Lady came out in 1980 and it reached the top of seemingly every chart in the world. Kenny Rogers knows how to sing a love song and he can set the mood for any night of passion and love. Lady is one of those songs that sets the mood in a slow, relaxing, groovy kind of way and it will put anybody in the mood for some romance.
26) I’d Love To Lay You Down – Conway Twitty
Once again, nobody can take his voice and turn it into a deep, passionate love song better than Conway Twitty. Conway put so much passion into every one of his songs that’s it’s impossible to deny his greatness. It seems though, however, that he gave a little extra on the love songs. I’d Love To Lay You Down was a classic love song that was nothing but pure lust and passion. The title of the song says it all and Conway held nothing back when he sang the song. Women went crazy when he would play it live and guys are still using the tune to set the mood today for a night of passion.
25) Strawberry Wine – Deana Carter
Boy did Deana Carter hit it big with her first single release. In the fall of ’96 Strawberry Wine hit the airwaves and women all over the nation were calling in to request it. The song is crazy good. To think that a slow waltz could take off and spend months at the top of the charts is crazy until you hear the song. The story of a young girl losing her innocence one summer on her grandparent’s farm rings true for everybody. The song remains a passionate love song that is great for setting the mood of feeling like the first time.
24) She’s More – Andy Griggs
Andy Griggs is kind of a funky country music artist. He doesn’t fit into any normal definitions of country but he found a way to add his pop country sound to the charts with a few huge songs in the ’00s. She’s More is a great song that hits home on so many levels as a romantic country song. The song is about thinking you know what you want in a perfect woman and then finding someone that is so much more than anything you could have ever wanted as a man. It’s the perfect song to put on and sing along with when you’re having a romantic dinner at home with your girl.
23) Remember When – Alan Jackson
Alan Jackson. Is there nothing country’s latest king can’t do? Alan Jackson can sing a song about anything and connect with so many different fans. People love to hear AJ tell stories. Back in 2003 Alan Jackson released the song Remember When. The song is an inside look at the love AJ and his wife Denise share.

22) Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right – Billy Currington
Billy Currington is an unlikely country star. The singer doesn’t wear a cowboy hat and he never wears cowboy boots if he even wears shoes at all.
