"Love's Gonna Live Here" is a 1963 single by Buck Owens, who also wrote the song. The single would be Buck Owens' second number one on the country charts spending sixteen weeks at the top spot and a total of thirty weeks on the chart.[1]

After "Love's Gonna Live Here" finished its 16-week stay at No. 1, no other song would spend more than 10 weeks at No. 1 for 49 years; the closest any song came was 2 1/2 years later, with David Houston's "Almost Persuaded" spending nine weeks at No. 1 from August to October 1966. On January 12, 2013, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift would become the first song since "Love's Gonna Live Here" to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1.

On July 6, 2013, "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line surpassed the 16-weeks-at-No.-1 longevity of "Love's Gonna Live Here" on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart when that song logged its 17th week at No. 1, something that had not happened in more than 49 years.
