This ballad was released as the lead single from Tate Stevens' debut album after he won season two of FOX's The X Factor. "The first time I heard 'Power Of A Love Song' I knew I had to record it," he said. "The best love songs say what we can't and get us through the tough times. The songwriters summed that up perfectly in this song. It is the power of a love song!"
"How many people don't love love songs?" noted Stevens to Billboard magazine of this song. "I do, because of how they move you, how they take you places - whether it's missing someone, or that first time you met your significant other, the first dance at your wedding. When I heard it, it just took everything about love songs and how they work, and they put it into a song. It's the truth. It can make you cry, it can make you laugh."
