Well, that time of year is upon us ... you know what I'm talking about. No, not winter although that is unfortunately here, but that time of year where love is in the air, Cupid's sharpening his arrow and couples everywhere are thinking about what they can do show each other how much they love each other while singles are rolling their eyes and spraying the air with "anti-love" repellant. Roses are great but sometimes there's no bigger turn on than words that come from the heart and whether you are head over heels giddy in love or you're single and swearing you'll never love again, country music has always been good at producing some of the best lines to make one believe in love ... through a song.
Here are some of our picks for the best "lyrics from the heart" just in time for Valentine's Day which falls in about 2 weeks. What are your favorite words from the heart?
