The power of Lionel Richie's words mixed with the strength of Kenny Rogers' voice made for an unlikely, but inspiring, love song. 'Lady' is a passionate recording. Rogers starts slow, holding one in eager anticipation of every note and phrase before finishing with a flurry. While the singer has other songs capable of landing on a Top 100 Country Love Songs list with no restrictions, the one song per artist rule means 'Lady' is his only contribution. 

"Lady, your love's the only love I need / And beside me is where I want you to be / 'Cause, my love, there's somethin' I want you to know / You're the love of my life, you're my lady," he sings to finish the song. The man who topped the Top 100 Country Songs of all time list lands a Top 5 hit here.
