No. 53: Statler Brothers, ‘My Only Love’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs

Statler Brothers tlanta Blue

No list of the Top 100 Country Love Songs would be complete without an entry from the Statler Brothers. The celebrated vocal group has recorded a number of great love songs, but none better than ‘My Only Love,’ which singer Jimmy Fortune wrote for his brother’s wedding.

The song’s simple, yet heartfelt lyric resonates with lovers everywhere: “You’re my only love/My only love / And I just thank the Lord above for you each day.” The track’s lush string arrangement provides a perfect setting for the group’s southern gospel harmonies and Fortune’s soaring falsetto. ‘My Only Love’ reached No. 1 in March of 1985.
