Never Love You Enough is the fifth studio album released by American country music artist Chely Wright. It was released on September 25, 2001 via MCA Nashville, and was her last album for the label.

Content[edit]

Its first two tracks — the title track and "Jezebel" — were both released as singles, both peaking in the mid-20s on the Billboard country charts. The latter was co-written by Jay DeMarcus, bass guitarist for the group Rascal Flatts. Trisha Yearwood sings background vocals on the track "Wouldn't It Be Cool" and Phil Vassar on "For the Long Run". Brad Paisley contributed background vocals for "Not as in Love" and "One Night in Las Vegas."

Source Rating
Allmusic 2/5 stars[1]
Country Standard Time mixed[2]

Michael Galluci of Allmusic rated the album 2 stars out of 5, saying that "This more conservative follow-up finds her back on the farm, still tracking the ins and outs of love, but accompanied by a shrugging indifference."[1] Eli Messinger of Country Standard Time gave the album a mixed review, saying that "Folksiness has given way to the chart-friendly crossover material and arena-styled power-ballads that continue to reign on her latest." and "The centrist, traditional messages may connect with listeners, but they won't push anyone's buttons or boundaries… This is a pleasant pop album, but hardly the sort of truly memorable work that Wright is so obviously capable of."[2]
