No. 6: Rascal Flatts, ‘Bless the Broken Road’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
‘Bless the Broken Road’ is a signature song for Rascal Flatts, and one of the finest love songs ever recorded by a country music group. The 2005 multi-week chart-topper is actually a cover, but their version has out-performed the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s original by far. Over two million singles of the song have been sold, and it continues to top wedding playlists years after its debut.
“Every long lost dream led me to where you are / Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars / Pointing me on my way into your loving arms,” Gary LeVox sings. The heartfelt, creative lyric spells love song for an entire generation of country music fans. It was a no-brainer as the only Rascal Flatts song on our Top 100 Country Love Songs list.
