Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaboration with Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood of Lady A. Lambert explained: "Lady Antebellum's Charles and Dave came down to Blake (Shelton) 's farm last year. We're really country and all we do at home is drive back roads or fish or have a fire. So we did all that, but we wrote too. They stayed for two days, and we wrote four songs. I would never think a song called 'Love Song' would be on my record because I just don't sing songs like that. But this song is about just knowing each other. My favorite part is the bridge. It says 'Everybody always sings about it/how they're never gonna live without it/But we don't have to talk about it/Because we're living it out.' To me that wraps up the whole song. It's not this fairy tale, bubblegum, happy, everybody's in love song. It's just about two real people. And Charles sings on it, which is unbelievable. It's so different for me. I guess I've reached a point where it's all right to maybe love somebody."
