No country music fan wouldn’t know about the iconic country music duos, most especially Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. The two collaborated on 11 studio albums from 1971 to 1988, earning five chart-toppers off five different albums – including their fifth and final hit “Feelins” from their same-titled 1975 album. The song, which was written by Troy Seals, Will Jennings, and Don Goodman, held the top spot for a week in its 13-week chart run.

Meaning Behind the Song

The key element of their duets is their vocal chemistry. That is, Conway Twitty’s smooth baritone blended so seamlessly with Loretta Lynn’s powerfully emotive vocals, producing a perfect balance of strength as well as vulnerability in their tracks. But beyond that technical compatibility, they also had a palpable emotional connection that never fails to give an additional layer of authentic air to their storytelling. 

And these two things were absolutely showcased in their romantic-themed track “Feelins’.”

The song opens with the line, “Feelins’ / Just lead us on ’til we know where we’re goin’.” It may seem like a casual line at first – a love that goes with the flow – but it actually sets the tone and encapsulates the message of the song. That is, a romantic relationship is not easy to navigate. 

In the first part of the song, the duo sings of the complexities of love, capturing the intense, emotional rollercoaster with the push-and-pull dynamics, the highs of affection, and the lows of uncertainty. They are also unafraid to express their doubt and vulnerability as they narrate their journey.

Then, in the second part, they sing of how passionately in love they are to each other. And that they are committed to working through the challenges together because they acknowledge that these are part of a relationship, painting a mature and enduring love. 

And this whole song is an experience that resonates with everyone because we’ve all been there at one point in time. 

But what really nailed it was the delivery. The synergy of their voices was undeniable, sweeping over the emotions, and their harmonies added an emotional impact. It was deeply heartfelt, making it a timeless piece of genius.
