Although you might think so, country music isn’t all about heartbreaks and sadness. In fact, there are so many great love songs that are ideal for a special, romantic evening with your guy. If you have started with a cowboy dating, these fantastic lesser-known country songs should definitely be on your playlist.
Something to Brag About – George Jones and Tammy Wynette
Although Charlie Louvin and Melba Montgomery originally recorded this song, we like this version better. George and Tammy really poured their hearts into this story about lovers who only need one another in this world.
Love is on a Roll – Don Williams
This song was No. 1 on the country charts back in 1983, so you should really listen to it and see what all the fuss was about. It was so popular back then that it even overshadowed Williams’s other hits.
I Fell in Love – Carlene Carter
If you have fallen head over heels for your new guy, this song will surely put a smile on your face because it is a real tribute to brand new love. Don’t worry; it’s not sappy like loves songs usually are.
My Favorite Picture of You – Guy Clark
This is definitely not your typical love song. It is actually about Clark’s late wife Susanna and the times they’ve spent fighting. On his final studio album ‘My Favorite Picture of You,’ Guy wanted to remind us that even true love isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, but when you are with the right person even those bad times are worth cherishing.
Old Time’s Sake – Charlie Worsham
We all know those classic stories of new love. However, ‘Old Time’s Sake’ has an unexpected ending, but we won’t tell you what it is, you will just have to listen to the song.
Old Country – Mark Chesnutt
Like many country songs, this one tells us a story about star-crossed lovers. Although one is from Ohio and the other from Alabama, they make it work despite all odds.
Way Down in My Soul – Zephaniah OHora
At some point in our lives, we have all wished that our soulmate would finally find us and change our lives for the better. If you feel that way too, listen to this song by Zephaniah OHora.
