No musical genre delivers a love duet better than country music. Real-life couples singing a country love duet together bring even more magic and sparks flying. We’ve compiled a list of eight country couples’ duets that are a perfect backdrop for your Valentine’s Day celebrations.
1. “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (1997)
“I just gotta let you know / What it is that won’t let me go? It’s your love / It just does something to me / It sends a shock right through me / I can’t get enough.”
2. “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” by Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani (2016)
“Why don’t you go ahead and break my heart? / Why are you waiting, is it way too hard? / If moving on is what you wanna do / Why don’t you do it? Why don’t you do it, baby? You can’t tell me that we’ll still be friends / And maybe someday we can try again / If you really need a brand new start / Why don’t you go ahead and break my heart?”
3. “In Another’s Eyes” by Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood (1997)
“In another’s eyes / I can do no wrong / He believes in me / And his faith is strong I’d never fall or even compromise / In another’s eyes.”
4. “House of Love” by Vince Gill and Amy Grant (1994)
“Now when the house is dark / And you’re all alone inside / You’ve gotta listen to your heart / And put away your foolish pride / Though the storm is breaking / And thunder shakes the walls / Love with a firm foundation / Ain’t never gonna fall.”
5. “Nobody But You” by Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani (2020)
“I don’t wanna live without you / I don’t wanna even breathe / I don’t wanna dream about you / Wanna wake up with you next to me / I don’t wanna go down any other road now / I don’t wanna love nobody but you / Lookin’ in your eyes now if I had to die now / I don’t wanna love nobody but you.”
6. “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (2014)
“Meanwhile back at Mama’s / The porch light’s on, come on in if you wanna / Supper’s on the stove and beer’s in the fridge / Red sun sinkin’ out low on the ridge / Game’s on the tube and Daddy smokes cigarettes / Whiskey keeps his whistle wet / Funny the things you thought you’d never miss. In a world gone crazy as this.”
7. “When I Said I Do” by Clint Black and Lisa Hartmann Black (1999)
“When I said I do, I meant that I will ’til the end of all time / Be faithful and true, devoted to you / That’s what I had in mind when I said I do.”
8. “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” by Keifer and Shawna Thompson (2010)
“Are you gonna kiss me or not? / Are we gonna do this or what? / I think you know I love you a lot / I think we’ve got a real good shot / Are you gonna kiss me or not?”
And a bonus track from country legends Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton—who may not be a couple but whose friendship ignites the same kind of chemistry that makes their reimagined duet, “Islands in the Stream,” is country music gold.
“Islands in the stream / That is what we are / No one in-between / How can we be wrong / Sail away with me to another world / And we rely on each other, ah-ah / From one lover to another.”
Happy Valentine’s Day!
