No. 5: Tracy Byrd, ‘The Keeper of the Stars’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
Tracy Bryd‘s most poetic lyric warrants a high spot on the Top 100 Country Love Songs list because of the way it was uniformly praised upon being released as a single in 1994, and for how it still resonates today. ‘The Keeper of the Stars’ was only a Top 5 hit, but it is one of the more powerful love songs of all time.
“Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine /It takes my breath away / Just to look into your eyes / I know I don’t deserve a treasure like you / There really are no words / To show my gratitude,” Byrd sings on this hit that ties romance to spirituality.
