“Satin Sheets” By Jeanne Pruett: A Song That Keeps Us Company 

Jeanne Pruett Satin Sheets
by

For years, Jeanne Pruett has been known to be one of the most successful female country singers in history. She has been able to release a lot of major hit songs like “Temporarily Yours” and “Back to Back.” However, among all her hit songs, “Satin Sheets” brought her to prominence. 

The song, written by John Volinkaty and originally performed by Bill Anderson and Jan Howard, didn’t receive much recognition the first time it was released. As a result, Pruett’s producer, Walter Haynes, believed the song would become a hit if its lyrics were to be tweaked.

And without any second wasted, Jeanne Pruett decided to rewrite the introduction to help make the song as record-friendly as possible. And let’s say the rest was history. The song hit the charts peaking at no. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles and no. 3 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks, making it one of Jeanne Pruett’s greatest hits. 

Meaning Behind the Song 

Have you ever heard of the saying, “Money Can’t Buy Happiness?”. Well, that’s pretty much what this song is all about. 

As we all probably know, money has its limitations because it can’t buy everything in life. And in the song, the narrator expresses how she feels living a rich yet unhappy life. Even if her man provides her with all the glamorous and expensive things that money can buy, it is not the one she honestly longs for in her life. 

All she wants is for her lover to give her attention and affection. But, since he can’t give that to her, she eventually finds a man that can give her what she truly deserves. After all, love is far more powerful than money.
