“Natural High” and it’s Content

A naturally beautiful love song about a man expressing how grateful he felt having a woman who is there for him no matter what the situation may be. When your partner supports you, maybe not in everything, but in the most important aspects of your life, it feels good. It is a perfectly written song that shows how much a man appreciates his woman and how lucky he felt to be with her. When someone is there for you and supports you with everything you feel so lucky and free because love should make you feel that way. It’s supposed to make you feel free and happy at the same time.

The Song’s Background

“Natural High” was track number 7 in his album. The song was accompanied by his band The Strangers. The Strangers was assembled by Merle in 1966 and had been performing with him ever since. The backup vocal was from Janie Fricke. Fricke is a popular female country singer in 1980’s. She usually performs ballads, and also won CMA Female Vocalist of the Year in 1982-1983. Merle and Janie’s voice together resulted in a perfect love song that can make you hit the repeat button many times.
