"Loved 'Em Every One" is a song written by Phil Sampson, and recorded by American country music artist T.G. Sheppard. It was released in March 1981 as the first single from the album I Love 'Em All. "I Loved 'Em Every One" was T.G. Sheppard's seventh number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for one week and spent ten weeks on the country chart.[1] "I Loved' Em Every One" was also Shepperd's only Top 40 single on Billboard's Hot 100, reaching #37.[2]

The song is a man's tribute to all the women he had encountered through the years. The women apparently come from a variety of backgrounds and sizes ("big or little, or short or tall"), and have had as few as one meeting with him. The man then says he wishes he could have "kept them all."
