God Love Her

Album: That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)
Charted: 36
  • Keith told Artist Direct that this song is "about a preacher's rebel daughter running off on the back of a motorcycle with a bad boy. The lyrics go, 'She is a rebel child, a preacher's daughter, baptized in dirty water.' I knew that those lyrics would make the single."
  • This song was written by Toby Keith together with Vicky McGehee, who also wrote Jason Aldean's hit "Johnny Cash." Keith explained on the press release for That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy why he hooked up with McGehee: "Vicky and I were co-Songwriters of the Year a couple years ago at the BMI Awards. After the awards were over someone said, 'You've got two songwriters of the year here, you ought to get together and write one.' So she came out on the road, we wrote a couple songs and this was one of them."
  • This was Keith's 18th #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart and his 15th chart-topper of the '00s. He already held the record for the most chart-toppers in the '90s, and with this song he extended his lead.
