Forgetting that romantic love and hope happens to us sometime in our everyday lives, and we all possess our own and once in a while not-so-decent methods of getting through. Maren Morris’s “I Could Use A Love Song” is a song we need to drive us home to that place of faith.
It was the third single from the album, “Hero,” and written by Morris with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz and co-produced by Busbee. It is a guitar and piano song that finds a sad Maren Morris getting tired of love. It’s kind of admitting to your mistakes and wishing that you’re not toying to that ‘heartbroken girl experiencing a breakup‘ concept.
“I Could Use a Love Song” is a dandy title. It just came out of a tipsy session in the Midtown studio, when Veltz and Robbins ask the singer what else is missing from her album. Maren replied, “You know, I could use a love song.” They drafted it post-haste since it was among those Maren Morris’ songs that you grasp from above, never lose anything, and believe all things seem sensible.
“I Could Use a Love Song” by Maren Morris stood number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making the song her second number-one single. It likewise achieved the #7 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It gained the same chart success in Canada, peaking number 14 on the Country chart. The song garnered a Gold certification from RIAA and Music Canada.
The song was also nominated for the Best Country Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country critiqued the song positively and commended the singer for showing a new side to her craft.
