No. 62: Ricky Van Shelton, ‘Rockin’ Years’ (Feat. Dolly Parton) – Top 100 Country Love Songs

Rockin Years
Columbia Records

This cut from Ricky Van Shelton’s ‘Backroads’ album reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, giving Shelton his eighth No. 1. Shelton and Dolly Parton trade lyrics in this hit from 1991 — a true country love duet. They’re two halves of a union that are forever bonded by their word. It’s a simpler kind of love that we tend to miss these days. 

“I’ll do everything I can to make you proud to be my man / And I’ll fulfill all your fantasies,” they sing to begin the song. A cute video shows a couple growing old together after first climbing onto a rocking chair as school children. Parton has another song on this list of the Top 100 Country Love Songs list, so we tallied this one under Van Shelton.
