No. 91: LeAnn Rimes, ‘I Need You’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
This tune from 2000 became a Top 10 country hit, but it secured a place on the Top 100 Country Love Songs list for its reach worldwide. LeAnn Rimes‘ lyrics radiate with warmth while providing inspiration over a melody that is easy to adore. The singer turns in a brilliant vocal performance on a song that became a popular wedding song after its release.
The country version of the song wasn’t released until after the pop version was a hit. Often that spells doom on country radio, but it wasn’t an issue for Rimes. The singer has included this on many greatest hits packages in recent years.
