Story behind the Song: Sometimes the Best Story to Tell Is the Simplest. Tom T. Hall with ‘I Love’
The history of country music is filled with great nicknames.
The Drifting Cowboy.
The Southern Gentleman.
And, of course, the Storyteller.
Tom T. Hall has written classics, #1 hits and songs that have become standard's (Who can forget 'Harper Valley PTA'?).
He's one of the great yarn spinners in country music history, but it in October of 1973, he decided to keep it simple. Real simple.
And real good.
'I Love' went to the top of the country music chart and also became Tom T.'s biggest pop music hit, entering the Top 15 there as well.
Of course Tom T. wrote it, and in this great classic video, Tom is joined by the legendary Tammy Wynette on the classic.
