"In a Real Love" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Phil Vassar. It was released on May 4, 2004 as the first single from the album Shaken Not Stirred. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart on November 6 becoming his second number one hit of his career and his first since "Just Another Day In Paradise" in 2000. It was written by Vassar and Craig Wiseman.


Vassar discussed the song's inspiration on his website in 2004:

Here's another one that Craig and I wrote. It came about because of this picture I had of me in high school with a leather jacket. I had this Bruce Jenner/Wings haircut. I thought I ruled the school. In other words … what a dork [laughs]. But it also was inspired by Julie, my wife, showing me this EPT and saying, "Guess what?" That's how I found out about Presley.[1]
