Current Hit:     “If I Didn’t Love You” by Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood

Linked to:        “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill /1997

Because:          Both songs explore the emotional underpinnings of love.

“If I Didn’t Love You” has explosive vocals, a moving melody, and harder edge than the more tender,  gentle “It’s Your Love,’  Also, it’s the highest ranking debut for a male/female duet on Billboard’s “Hot Country Songs”  since the list was first published, in 1958!

“If I Didn’t Love You”…    I wouldn’t mind being alone
                                       I wouldn’t keep checking my phone
                                       Wouldn’t take the long way home

Ranking:  #13 on the Country music chart.
