"It's Your Love" is a song written by Stephony Smith and originally recorded by American country music artist Tim McGraw. Released in May 1997 as the lead single from his album Everywhere, the song, featuring his wife Faith Hill, reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in its fifth week and stayed there for six weeks (the first time a song spent that many weeks there since Waylon Jennings's "Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)" in 1977); it also became McGraw's and Hill's first top-ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number seven. American pop trio She Moves covered the song in 1998, and the song has also been covered by artists such as Gil Ofarim, Tommy Page, LMNT, Natural, Cyndi Almouzni (under the stage name Cherie), Jo O'Meara, and Ruben Studdard.[3]

"It's Your Love" became the first duet by a married couple to top the country chart since the inception of Nielsen BDS in 1990. No such single would top the chart again until almost 26 years later, when Kane and Katelyn Brown's "Thank God" topped the chart in February 2023.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed and produced by Sherman Halsey, and premiered on CMT on May 14, 1997, when CMT named it a "Hot Shot". Hill was pregnant with the couple's oldest daughter Gracie Katherine when it was filmed.[5]
