Women are great (an understatement). They deserve to have songs written about them. Well, the below country music stars have already done that!
Here are 10 country songs written about women.
“It’s Your Song” – Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks’ “Double Live” is the biggest selling live album ever. The single “It’s Your Song” from that album became a tribute to his mom, whom Brooks gave a lot of credit to for encouraging him in following his dreams. Moms are quite important, to say the least.
“Jolene” – Dolly Parton
“Jolene” is about a woman trying to keep her man from being stolen by someone named, obviously, Jolene. The song became a No. 1 hit in 1973, and has stood the test of time.
“Amanda” – Waylon Jennings
The 1979 release “Amanda” was one of Jennings biggest hits. It tells the story of a country singer who’s in love with a woman and is trying to win her over, a classic synopsis for a love song.
“Vidalia” – Sammy Kershaw
By the time “Vidalia” came out, Kershaw was already big, but this song pushed him even further in the limelight. It climbed to No. 10 on the charts, and deservedly so. It was catchy and just an all-around fun song.
“Lucille” – Kenny Rogers
Rogers is obviously a staple in the country music world, thanks especially to “The Gambler.” But “Lucille” was his first No. 1 song as a solo artist — the start to a great career. And it all started with a song about a girl.
“Don’t Take The Girl” – Tim McGraw
Second time’s a charm, right? “Don’t Take The Girl” was his second single on his second album and it made him a star. It’s about a man who’s willing to give up everything he has in order to get this girl.
“Give It Away” – George Strait
Strait is a star and he creates star-worthy tunes. In 2006, he put out “Give It Away,” a song that would take first place on the charts and in the award ceremonies. The song is about a divorced couple who don’t want their things from when they were married.
“Always On My Mind” – Willie Nelson
This song wasn’t written by Nelson, but his version seems to have done the best, reaching No. 1 on the charts. The topic is not so unique, but that hook is an earworm.
“He Stopped Loving Her Today” – George Jones
This song has won awards and helped build Jones’ legacy of one of the best ever. This song talks about a man who can’t stop thinking about a girl and is faced with the reality of death.
“Good Hearted Woman” – Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson
This song is a tribute to all good women and it became the theme song for men who have girls that stick by them through tough times. Truly, one of the best songs about a woman in country music.
