About the song

If you are a fan of country music, you probably know the song “She’s In Love With The Boy” by Trisha Yearwood. It was her debut single and her first number one hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1991. But do you know the history behind this catchy tune? In this blog post, we will explore the origins, the lyrics, and the impact of this classic country song.

The song was written by Jon Ims, a singer-songwriter from Colorado who had moved to Nashville in 1984. He had been struggling to make a living as a musician and was about to give up when he got a call from Garth Fundis, a producer who had heard his demo tape. Fundis was looking for songs for Trisha Yearwood, a new artist he was working with. He liked Ims’ song “She’s In Love With The Boy” and asked him if he could pitch it to Yearwood. Ims agreed and soon after, Yearwood recorded the song for her self-titled debut album.

The song tells the story of Katie and Tommy, two young lovers from a small town who face opposition from Katie’s father, who thinks Tommy is not good enough for his daughter. But Katie’s mother comes to their defense and reminds her husband that they were just like Katie and Tommy when they were young and that love will prevail. The song has a catchy chorus that repeats the line “She’s in love with the boy” four times, followed by “And even if they have to run away, she’s gonna marry that boy someday”.

The song was released as the lead single from Yearwood’s album in March 1991 and quickly became a hit. It reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on July 27, 1991, making Yearwood the first female country artist to have a debut single reach number one. The song also crossed over to the pop charts, peaking at number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song received positive reviews from critics, who praised Yearwood’s vocal performance and the song’s catchy melody and relatable lyrics.

The song also had a popular music video, directed by Marc Ball. The video features Yearwood singing on a stool in front of a barn, interspersed with scenes of three couples of different ages (pre-teen, young adult, and elderly) who represent Katie and Tommy at different stages of their lives. The video also shows some farm animals moving to the music. The video was nominated for Video of the Year at the 1991 Country Music Association Awards.
