Who doesn’t love a good country song? Anyone, whether single, dating, or married, can appreciate the power of music paired with words that express the deepest emotions.

That’s why we scoured the proverbial shelves of country music and came up with the best of the best. With that in mind, here are quotes from five of the best country breakup songs.

Sara Evans – “Alone”

Sara Evans has won an award for “female vocalist” from the Academy of Country Music, and she was the first country artist to appear on “Dancing With The Stars.” But even though she can sing and dance, she still experiences heartache and love lost like the rest of us.“

“Thank you for the roses that you sent me

They’re beautiful
And you asked me to think of you
You know I will
Your note just said “I’m sorry, please forgive me”
I always do, but I have to let you know the way I feel:

I left you this message so you’d know
Sometimes loving me just means leaving me alone”

Kenny Chesney – “Better As A Memory”

Chesney has won dozens of awards from the CMA, ACM, CMT, and other organizations. It can be hard to realize that superstars are really just regular people (with emotions) who have a boat-load of talent.“

“One day you’re gonna find someone
And right away you’ll know it’s true
That all of your seeking’s done
It’s just a part of the passing through
Right there in that moment
You’ll finally understand
That I was better as a memory than as your man
Better as a memory than as your man”

Zac Brown Band – “Colder Weather”

ZBB has won three GRAMMYs, and they delivered with this breakup song from their album, “You Get What You Give” (2010).“

“At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,
The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin’,
And in the waitress’ eyes he sees the same ‘ol light shinin’,
He thinks of Colorado
And the girl he left behind”

Kellie Pickler – “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You”

Pickler got her start on the hit show American Idol and hasn’t stopped singing since then.

“When I write a song,” she says on her website, “I just write about who I am and where I’ve been, where I am and what I’m going through, or about people who have had an impact on me.”“I can’t get you out of my head

“I can’t get you out of my head
I still feel you in this bed
Left me all alone
You couldn’t be more gone
From falling apart to fighting mad
From wanting you back to not giving a damn
I’ve felt it all
I’ve been to the wall”

Darius Rucker – “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”

As a band-leader-turned-country-singer, Rucker has stepped confidently into the country music world, his version of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” landed at number one on the Country charts, and he’s won a GRAMMY for “Best Country Solo Performance.”

“But don’t think I don’t think about it
Don’t think I don’t have regrets
Don’t think it don’t get to me
Between the work and the hurt and the whiskey
Don’t think I don’t wonder ’bout
Could’ve been, should’ve been all worked out
I know what I felt, and I know what I said
But don’t think I don’t think about it”
