"She's My Rock" is a song written by Gene Dobbins. It was first recorded by Stoney Edwards on his 1973 album She's My Rock. Edwards' version peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
The song is sometimes recorded by female artists. In these cases, the song becomes "He's My Rock," with the genders changed as appropriate.
Regardless of the song's title -- either "He's My Rock" or "She's My Rock" -- the song retains the same subject matter: A person who is aware of the seedy past of his/her now-spouse and -- when confronted with the facts -- strongly defending him/her and warning the antagonist to back off because of his/her own unflattering character.
- Brenda Lee covered the song as "He's My Rock" for her 1975 album, Sincerely. Lee's rendition peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
- Olivia Newton-John also covered the song as "He's My Rock" on her 1975 album Clearly Love. Though her version was not a single on its own, it did become the B-side of her #13 Billboard Hot 100 and #1 Adult Contemporary hit of that year, "Something Better to Do."
- George Jones released a cover of the song in August 1984 as the first single from his album Ladies' Choice. Jones' version reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in December 1984 and No. 1 on the RPM Country Tracks chart in Canada in January 1985.
