About The Song

Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. Their voices, individually iconic, became intertwined in a tapestry of shared experience, delightful tension, and undeniable chemistry. Today, we’ll be taking a listen to their 1980 hit, “It’s True Love”, a song that showcases both the playful banter and the deep affection that characterized their best work.

Loretta Lynn, the formidable “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” carved out a space for strong, independent women in country music. Her frank lyrics and powerful voice resonated with a generation of female listeners who saw themselves reflected in her tales of love, loss, and resilience.

Conway Twitty, the smooth baritone with a touch of rock and roll swagger, brought a touch of romantic charm to the equation. Together, they were a force to be reckoned with, their duets consistently topping the charts and capturing the hearts of country music fans.

“It’s True Love” stands out as a particularly delightful example of their collaborative magic. Released on their 1979 album “Diamond Duet”, the song is a celebration of newfound love, sung with a youthful exuberance that belies their veteran status.

We open with a classic country music trope: the man declares his devotion by offering to move mountains for his beloved. Loretta’s response, a knowing “Aw, I know you would,” sets the tone for the playful back-and-forth that characterizes the song.

There’s a delightful innocence in their declarations. He promises to change his hair color, a concession most men wouldn’t readily make, while she playfully chides him for making her cry…happy tears, of course. The song’s beauty lies in its simplicity.

The lyrics are straightforward, the melody cheerful and familiar, yet it conveys a genuine sense of joy and wonder at finding true love. It’s a reminder that even country music legends can be swept off their feet by the giddiness of new romance.

So, settle back, put on your favorite pair of boots, and let Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn transport you to a simpler time, where love conquers all, and promises are made with wide-eyed sincerity.

“It’s True Love” is a testament to the enduring power of country music to capture the simple joys of human connection.
