Cowboys Are My Weakness

Album: Life and Love and All the Stages (1995)

Songfacts®:

  • Holly Dunn can't resist a cowboy in this tune written by the country singer, along with her brother Chris Waters and Nashville songwriter Tom Shapiro. Dunn was inspired when a friend gave her a book with the title Cowboys Are My Weakness. "I thought that was a really cool line," she explained in a Songfacts interview. "The big hook is 'it must be the jeans' or 'it could be the jeans' - j-e-a-n-s or g-e-n-e-s. So, it had a little twist to it."
