More Love is the fifth studio album recorded by American country music artist Doug Stone. Released in 1993 on Epic Records, it features the singles "I Never Knew Love," "Addicted to a Dollar," and "More Love," all of which were Top Ten hits on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts.

Content[edit]

"More Love" and "Dream High" were both featured on the soundtrack to the 1994 film Gordy, in which Stone starred.

Stone produced nine of the ten songs with James Stroud. The last song, "Dream High", was produced by Stroud along with Tom Bahler and Bruce Swedien.

Critical reception[edit]

Tom Roland of New Country magazine rated the album two stars out of five. His review criticized the album for "continu[ing] to mine the drippy side of Stone" through "manipulative" ballads, but cited "Addicted to a Dollar" and "Love, You Took Me by Surprise" as being "tougher" than Stone's previous works.[1]
