"I Like It, I Love It" is a song written by Jeb Stuart Anderson, Steve Dukes, and Mark Hall, and recorded by American country music artist Tim McGraw. It was released in July 1995 as the first single from his album All I Want. The song is McGraw's ninth single overall, and it became his third number-one single on the Hot Country Songs chart. It was recorded at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals Alabama.[1]


"I Like It, I Love It" is an up-tempo, guitar-driven song in which the narrator describes how deeply in love he is with his female lover.

In popular culture[edit]

The song appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Country and was also almost invariably played during the halftime of ABCs Monday Night Football. It is also a part of the goal song for the NHL's Nashville Predators; McGraw re-recorded the chorus, replacing, "Don't know what it is 'bout that little gal's lovin", it is "Don't know what it is 'bout them Predators scorin'"

When McGraw performs the song live, he often substitutes "Braves" in the first verse with the name of a sports team that plays in the arena, stadium, or nearest city in which he is performing. For example, when he performs at Staples Center in Los Angeles, he may sing, "I ain't seen the Kings play a game all year."

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Sherman Halsey, his usual director of choice, and was filmed during his touring. It was filmed using a pop-up style, where several different scenes appear and disappear at the same time, rather than the usual cutting method.
