1,000 Faces

Album: Randy Montana (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • The son of the hit Country songwriter Billy Montana, Randy Montana wrote this song with Tom Douglas, whose credits include "I Run To You" by Lady Antebellum and "The House That Built Me" by Miranda Lambert. Randy told us that Tom came up with the line "love has 1,000 faces," and that was their starting point in the song. From there, they created a long list that formed the basis for the lyrics.
  • To come up with the list in this song, Randy tried to think about not just every type of girl he's come across, but also the different things about them that make them unique. Said Randy, "You get into what they like, what they don't like, the 'half-caf, two-pump, no whip in the coffee bean' type thing. We were going there with it, because you can start to sound like a sexist pig if you go the other route." (See our full Randy Montana interview.)
