"Love Your Love the Most" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Eric Church. It was released in February 2009 as the first single from his album Carolina. The sixth single release of his career, it is also his first Top Ten country hit on the Billboard country charts. Church wrote the song with Michael P. Heeney.
"Love Your Love the Most" is a mid-tempo song in which the male narrator lists off various objects that he likes (e.g. "Yes, I love good cold beer / And mustard on my fries / I love a good loud honky-tonk / That rocks on Friday nights"). He then goes on to say that although he loves these, what he loves most is his female partner ("Honey, I love your love the most").
Dan Milliken of Country Universe.net gave this song a D- rating, saying that the lyrics "[run] through a pointless list of completely unrelated things he likes or believes in[…]This time, though, the list is set up to show his woman that he appreciates her more than even the finest in material pleasures." He compared its theme to Tom T. Hall's Number One hit "I Love", but said that while that song "sounded knowingly silly", "Love Your Love the Most" had a more serious sound in contrast to its list approach.
The music video, directed by Adam Hall, premiered on CMT on March 24, 2009. The video sees a man walking into a pawn shop attempting to sell a guitar and comes across a View-Master on the counter and begins looking through the reels. The reels feature Church performing the song and each slide shows him performing a different action. Upon completing the slideshow, the man feeling inspired by the song, decides to keep his guitar.
"Love Your Love the Most" debuted at number 59 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs for the week of February 28, 2009.
