Charlie & Debbie

Weekdays 3:00PM - 7:00PM

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d throw this out there.  You may or may not agree with this list of choices, but your scientific method of choice is different from mine.   Here is how I came to these seven to choose from, I call ’em “The Three Rs”:

1.  Requests we’ve taken on the radio since 1990
2. Reaction to these when performed live by the artists
3.  Rush to the dance floor in bars-by people who don’t dance-the moment these are played. 

Now, of course, there are several I wanted to put in, just because I like them, but that’s not very scientific now is it.   So, with that being said, which one of this seven-to-you-is the best?

  • John Michael Montgomery-I Love The Way You Love Me

    This one is the wild card.  Most have forgotten it, but to me this is the one.  It is the perfect love song written by Chuck Cannon to his wife, country singer, Lari White.  Think he EVER had to get a Valentine’s Day gift again? <g>

  • Lonestar-Amazed

    I’m going to be totally honest here, this has never been on my list of favorites.  That being said, there was a period of about 10 years when you could not go to a wedding without this either being played DURING the ceremony or as the first dance at the reception

  • Rascal Flatts-Bless The Broken Road

    Oh boy…if I thought “Amazed” was a wedding song, it was as if Rascal Flatts said, “Hold My Beer.”  The difference for me is I always loved this song.  The boys in this band had a lot of hits, this is their signature song.

  • Tim McGraw & Faith Hill-It's Your Love

    I remember when this song was about to be released, the hype was UNREAL.  “Country’s biggest power couple singing together for the first time. ” And then, the song MORE than lived up to the hype.  To this day, you can make a strong argument this is the top country duet of all time.

  • Eric Church-Love Your Love The Most

    Maybe a surprise for some people here.  However, I had to give some love to the home team.  I fell in love with this song when Eric sang it to Debbie in-studio one day.  It was magic.  And I always found it ironic that for a guy known for rockin’ every stage he’s on, his first number one song was this simple ballad to his wife.

  • Chris Stapleton-Tennessee Whiskey

    This is one of those times when it can be said that this may not be the first version of this song, but it’s the best.   And you talk about a song that pulls people on the dance floor?  We were at a Van Halen tribute band show on Saturday night.  That show ended, the DJ played this song, and the floor was packed.  THAT’S a powerful love song.

  • George Strait-I Cross My Heart

    This was the first single from the great soundtrack to the not-so-great movie, “Pure Country.” What woman can resist George singing, “I cross my heart and promise to, give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true?”
