“River of Love:” A Beautiful Love Song By George Strait


The song “River of Love” tells the story of a man inviting his lover to go with him on a boating trip. He uses the river to explain his love.

We’ll go rollin’ on the river of love

Let’s go rollin’ on the river of love

Drift away from all these city lights

Might rock a little bit, so hold on tight

The Story of the Songwriters

Billy Brunette, Shawn Camp, and Dennis Morgan wrote the song in a single session. They told the Boot that they were just sitting around when suddenly Camp was playing his ukulele. And, everything flew out easily. It was supposed to be recorded by country singer Josh Turner, but eventually, it fell into Strait’s hands.

Strait performed his single in the 2008 CMA Award show.
