No. 96: Heidi Newfield, ‘Johnny and June’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
Heidi Newfield's highest charting song was nominated for three ACM Awards in 2009, including Song and Single of the Year. She didn't win ('Need You Now' by Lady Antebellum took both), but she proved she could be as effective on her own as she was with Trick Pony. The singer uses the famous love of two country legends to express her desires in this song.
"I wanna love like Johnny and June / Rings of fire burnin' with you / I wanna walk the line / Walk the line / 'Til the end of time," Newfield sings in this cathartic expression of the heart. She scores major points for her creativity. You won't find another like it on the Top 100 Country Love Songs list.
