Well, today is the big day, February 14th. So here is a Triple Shot by Martina McBride, Tim & Faith and Chris Young that doesn’t need much explanation.
Martina McBride’s “Valentine” was written by Jim Brickman and first appeared on his 1997 album “Picture This” then later on Martina’s album “Evolution.” The song reached No. 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the Adult Contemporary charts in 1997. Although it first appeared on the Hot Country Songs charts at that time, it was not officially released as a single to the country format until a year later when it peaked at No. 9.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s “Let’s Make Love” was written by Marv Green, Aimee Mayo, Chris Lindsey and Bill Luther. It was released in 2000 as the third single from Faith’s album, “Breathe,” and was also featured on Tim’s first greatest hits album. The song reached No. 6 on Hot Country Songs chart and won them a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 2001.
Chris Young’s “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” was released in February 2009 as the second single from his 2009 album “The Man I Want to Be.” Chris wrote the song with Kent Blazy and Cory Batten. It became the first of five consecutive No. 1 hits for him on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. The music video features actress Idina Menzel (singer of the Frozen song ‘Let It Go’) as the woman Chris is prepared to have a date with by setting it at her home.
I want badly for you to join us next week for three songs about another side of Valentine’s Day.
