"I Love the Way You Love Me" is a simple classic country song that opens up the heart to love. John Michael Montgomery poured out his heart to a special someone when he sang it.


Montgomery, now 53, performed the song over two decades ago in 1993. At the time, it was the second single off his "Life's a Dance" album. The first of which carried the same name.

The song "I Love the Way You Love Me" catapulted the Kentucky singer's name into stardom, becoming a favorite for weddings and slow dances in the following years.

The song was written by Victoria Shaw and Chuck Cannon and went on to be remixed by an Irish boyband called "Boyzone" in 1998.

It stood at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for three weeks, becoming a number-one single after debuting at No. 60.


The Academy of Country Music named it Song of the Year in 1993. So who was the inspiration for the passionate love song?

Co-writer Chuck Cannon actually wrote the song under the inspiration of his wife, the now late singer-songwriter Lari White.

Montgomery went on to produce more hits such as "I Swear," "Be My Baby Tonight," If You've Got Love, "I Can Love You Like That, "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)", and "The Little Girl."

It was his father who motivated the singer to pursue a musical career. Montgomery went on to release 10 studio albums. And in 2008, he founded his own label, "Stringtown Records."

The first two singles off the album, "Mad Cowboy Disease" and "If You Ever Went Away" flopped in the charts. But the third, "Forever," reached to No. 28, his first entry in more than four years.

Meanwhile, Montgomery is also attending to his family. He has two children with wife Crystal White who he married in 1996.
